Recently, Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian accepted an interview on the team's official website. In the interview, Adrian talked about his Spanish compatriot Thiago, new aid Jota, and the following League Cup match between Liverpool and Lincoln City.
Thiago is a world-class player and I have known him before. We played for the national team together, and we also have many mutual friends. He is a top player, very level. He is different, with strong passing, strong shooting and good vision. He can help us a lot. This season will be difficult, and he can use his strength to help us in this situation. Obviously, as a top player, he blended into the locker room very quickly and his English was also good. I think he will enjoy his first season in the Premier League with us.
I have been doing my best to help him. When I came last year, people helped me get used to it as quickly as possible. They told me everything about the city, the feeling of this club and the philosophy here, which made me feel good. So I also shared with Thiago everything I wanted to share with him in the beginning. I talked to him several times and talked to him a lot about this club. Hope he can enjoy this season!
He is exactly what I expected! But my teammates, they may have felt how strong Thiago is when facing Bayern or Barcelona before. You can tell that Thiago is a completely different player. He has strong left and right feet, just like a foot. His ambitions are like coming from another planet. You can see that he can pass the ball that others can’t pass, and the spin added to his shot is only He can do it on his own--and he can do it with his left and right feet. He trains very hard, and he is smart enough to adapt to the team's fast play as quickly as possible. When you see him in Melwood now, it feels like this is his new home. He arrives at the earliest and leaves at the latest every time he trains.
Of course! He is a winner. Looking at his career, he has won too many championship trophies and played for top teams such as Bayern and Barcelona. He likes to win, and he came here to win. He wants to win all the championships we can get this season. This will be a bit difficult and will take a long time. Signing him is a great signing, and he can definitely help us!
He is well integrated! He also trained with us for a few days, and he is also a very good signing. We need him as a player with strength and speed. Last year he showed in the Wolves that he can score goals, dribble and pass the ball. He can do many things on the court, and he works very hard. I think he will integrate into the team very quickly! We hope he can get a chance in the next few games to show his strength!
No game is a simple game. They will definitely play this game as the last game of their lives. This is their battle of the season. Imagine the feeling-Liverpool are coming to your own stadium to play-even though your fans can't be there, you have to defend your home court. Obviously, they will show us their desire to win. But I think we must at least have the same mental state and desire to win as them. Of course, the next schedule is very dense, we will have some different choices in the starting line, and the coach will also do some rotations. But once you put on the Liverpool shirt, you have to do your best.
It's a new event and a new championship that we can compete for. We want to win as many games as possible, and everyone has to face new challenges from the League Cup. This is a new game that we have to greet with a smile and devote all our efforts!
