Liverpool New Boy Looking To Make Name For Himself At ‘Huge Club’

By on September 21, 2011

Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates is relishing the challenge of playing for one of the world’s biggest clubs.

The South American joined Liverpool from Nacional in the summer with a deal thought to be in the region of £7million and made his debut during Sunday’s 4-0 defeat to Spurs.

“The biggest attraction was the challenge: to come to an unfamiliar place – a huge club – and make a name for myself,” he told LFC magazine.

“So far in my career, I have been very lucky to play for Nacional, to play in the Copa Libertadores, to win the Copa America.

“There has been a lot of success in a short period of time but I have achieved that in a place where I am most comfortable.

“Now, I am here, in a different country, in a different league, with different team-mates. The best players are successful wherever they go.

“I am determined to become an important player here at a historical stage of the club’s future.”

The powerful stopper arrives in England with a glowing reputation after being awarded the Best Young Player during his country’s successful Copa America campaign in the summer.
