Charlie Adam is delighted to be working with Liverpool assistant manager Steve Clarke.

The midfielder admits his fellow Scot is one of the best coaches he's been trained by in his career and feels the 48-year-old's methods on the Melwood training pitches are having a big impact on the field.

Adam told LFC Magazine: "No disrespect to the people I've played with before, but I think the quality of players here is so high. The standard of training is superior too.

"I'd heard about Steve Clarke before I came here and I knew by his record that he was highly rated.

"He's been at some top clubs and been successful.

"He's a very good coach and, as time goes on, we'll get better thanks to his methods.

"I think working with him helps us to become better individuals and a better group."
