CHARLIE Adam has thanked Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish for showing faith in him after the Seasiders rejected the Reds’ initial advances in January.
Adam admitted the winter transfer window was a “tough” period for him as Pool decided to hold on to a player they saw as vital to their hopes of staying in the Premier League.
But after the deal was finally completed last week, the midfielder is looking forward to his opportunity at Anfield.
The 25-year-old, who is in the Far East as part of Liverpool’s two-match tour, said: “I’m delighted to eventually be here. Obviously it was tough in January with the decisions that were made, and I respected Blackpool in that. I have now been able to come here and join a wonderful club, a massive club that is well known all over the world.
“Obviously I’d like to thank the manager for bringing me here and it is a step in my career I’m looking forward to. I want to learn and some of the best players in the world are at this club, so if I can learn from them I will improve as a player. That is my aim.”
