Adam Lallana has taken inspiration from Liverpool’s 5-2 tanning of Roma as he battles to save his World Cup hopes.
The Reds’ midfielder popped in for some relaxing treatment – after returning from a trip to South Africa for special help on his injured hamstring.
The 29-year-old could choose from a sun bed, a massage or other holistic therapies like hypnotherapy or life coaching at the tanning and beauty salon in Liverpool.
Lallana’s priority, though, is to to be fully fit before the end of the domestic season.
The England playmaker, capped 34 times, has started just three games for Liverpool this term.
But after he watched Tuesday’s thumping of Roma in the Champions League semi-final first leg at Anfield, Lallana will be extra keen to be fit by next month.
A place – and strong performance in the European Cup final in Ukraine on May 26 – would surely transform his assessment of an injury-hit campaign.
But it might have little effect on whether he makes the World Cup.
Lallana certainly looked in fine shape as he left the salon in a tracksuit and trainers, wearing his cap back to front.
