Adam Lallana got to meet one of his idols in Qatar this week.
The Liverpool midfielder is in the Gulf nation to undergo further rehabilitation for a thigh injury he sustained in pre-season. Much to his happiness, Lallana got the opportunity to speak with Barcelona and Spain legend Xavi, who currently plays for Qatari club Al Sadd.
"Great week stepping up the rehab even further - getting stronger each and every day," Lallana wrote.
"Added bonus of meeting and chatting to one of my idols as well - Xavi. So down to earth despite being one of the greatest players of his generation."
