Adrian was released by West Ham in the summer, and he went on to join Liverpool on a free transfer.
The Spaniard was expected to be Alisson Becker’s back-up for the majority of the campaign, but the Brazilian’s injury on the opening day of the season has given the 32-year-old a chance that he surely would not have expected.
Adrian was always a fan favourite at West Ham, and many Hammers fans were sad to see him leave.
He has performed admirably for Liverpool over the past month or so.
The Reds stopper produced a moment of magic in the Champions League last night, making a wonder save from Dries Mertens’ effort.
And some West Ham fans took to Twitter in reaction to his heroics for the Merseyside outfit against Naples in the Champions League last night.
Here’s a selection fo some of the best tweets…
Better than the 4 per match he let in as an Iron. Good riddance.

Mad how Adrian has gone from sitting on the bench at West Ham to playing in the champions league for the holders 😂

I am really pleased for Adrian. Cult hero at West Ham and pleased he is getting this opportunity.

What annoys me is that Adrian was so underrated at us (West Ham) he left us to be 1st choice, went to Liverpool and ended up being 2nd choice until their 1st choice got injured and now he’s being overhyped 🤣🤣

Why West Ham let Adrian go I will never know 🤷♂️

West Ham do have Lukasz Fabianski, and he is arguably one of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers. What cannot be argued is that the Polish stopper made more saves than any other goalkeeper last season.
So letting Adrian leave on a free is understandable.
Seeing him flourish at Liverpool will still be hard to watch for Hammers fans, however.
