Liverpool 29-year-old star sent to South Africa to for injury treatment

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has reportedly travelled to South Africa to receive specialist treatment in his rehabilitation from a hamstring injury.

The 29-year-old has made just three starts and 10 substitute appearances in an injury-hit season which did not start until late November because of a thigh injury.

In addition, Lallana has not played for the Reds since the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace in March, in which he lasted just five minutes as a second-half substitute.

According to The Mirror, the England international has been having treatment at the Sports Science Institute in Cape Town.

Lallana also posted a photo of himself on what appears to be the outdoor pitches at the Institute on his Instagram page with the caption “all to play for”.

The former Southampton star has made 138 appearances for Liverpool since his switch to Anfield in 2014.
