Liverpool take on Roma in the first leg of the UCL semi-finals next Tuesday. They would hope to progress and earn a spot in the final where injured players Emre Can or Lallana could at least make the bench.
So, it's surprising to see photos of Lallana on holiday in South Africa this week, while the Reds prepare for a league encounter against West Brom on Saturday.
Lallana is working hard on his recovery, but it all looks as though he's taking his time to be ready. Not for Liverpool, but for... England in the World Cup in Russia. That June date is a more realistic target.
That doesn't stop the Cape Town City club from taking photos with the Liverpool star. Don't break a leg.
