New boy Adrian gives honest appraisal of Liverpool back four

23rd August 2019, 08:17

Just days after joining Liverpool as a free agent, the Spaniard made his debut in the Premier League opener against Norwich after injury

New arrival and European Super Cup hero Adrian is keen to make the most of his limited opportunity at Anfield.

Just days after joining Liverpool as a free agent, the Spaniard made his debut in the Premier League opener against Norwich after injury to first-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

Adrian, who slept with the Super Cup trophy the night they beat Chelsea on penalties, dedicated last week’s Istanbul win to Alisson.

But he knows the Brazil international’s calf injury will only sideline him for a few more weeks so he is relishing every minute of the experience, which has already brought him one piece of silverware.

“We are playing football to live these kind of moments, great moments,” he told liverpoolfc.com.

“Obviously, like life, you can have good and bad moments in your career. But we need to enjoy these kind of games and these kinds of moments.

“You need to enjoy it with your family, best friends, with fans, with the team-mates.

“And also change the mentality like, ‘Nothing is done, we need to keep playing’.”

Adrian made a mistake in the 2-1 win at Southampton, but his  introduction to life at Liverpool has been made easier playing behind a defence which was the best in the Premier League last season and he has hailed his rearguard.

“I think, for me as a goalkeeper, they make easy decisions. Honestly, they defend everything like animals. They help me a lot,” he added.
