‘I want to help us win trophies’


‘I want to help us win trophies’

Charlie Adam completed his move to Liverpool and immediately declared: ‘Let’s bring the good times back!’

Adam put the finishing touches to his move from Blackpool after successfully passing a medical and putting pen to paper on his new Anfield deal.

With speculation rife for months that the Scottish midfielder would be on his way to Merseyside, Adam is now happy to focus on the future and play his part in the club’s quest for honours.

“I am absolutely delighted to be here,” he told Liverpoolfc.tv. “It has been a long process but now I can’t wait to get started and hopefully this will be a successful period in my career and in the club’s history.

“Liverpool is a massive club with terrific players and a terrific manager. You have seen since the new manager came in the forward strides that have been made. Kenny has a terrific respect from players and people in the game. He is a wonderful manager and it’s an honour to be able to say I’m going to be able to play for Liverpool.

“I see this as the perfect development for me to come here, play with such wonderful players and hopefully help the team to win trophies, because that’s the most important thing.

“I’m delighted to be able to walk out on the same pitch as some of the players here. There are good players at the club, top, top players who I want to learn from. I want to become a better player and hopefully bring something to the team.

“Hopefully we can have a successful period because it’s been missing now for a couple of years. At the end of the day you get judged on trophies and as a footballer you want to win as many as you can. This club has had a lot of success over the years, so let’s get back to doing that.”

Adam silenced the Kop last season by netting a penalty at the Kop end during Blackpool’s shock 2-1 Anfield victory – but now he’s looking forward to instead putting smiles on the faces of Liverpool fans.

“Since I’ve known about Liverpool’s interest I’ve been looking at the website and obviously playing here last season, the passion of the supporters, they know what it means and they’re there to support the team. That’s what you want as a player, to know the fans will back you to the hilt through thick and thin.

“I tasted Anfield last year, scoring here was an unbelievable feeling and hopefully I’ve got many more days like that as a Liverpool player.”

One thing Adam could be forgiven for is feeling a sense of relief at no longer having to face a daily bombardment of messages on his Twitter account from fans desperate for a transfer update.

“It’s been difficult because everyone has been asking what’s happening and I haven’t known,” he said. “I’m just glad it’s done now and I can focus on the football. I’m here to play football and we are looking forward to a successful season and a successful future for Liverpool Football Club.”
