Liverpool’s final summer signing Taiwo Awoniyi has moved immediately on loan to FSV Frankfurt, but spoke to the official website about his thoughts and feelings on the move.
The 18-year-old Nigerian youth international will spend the year in Germany, before joining up with Liverpool in summer 2016 – when he’s spent enough time in Europe to get an appropriate work permit to play in England.
Here’s what the new forward had to say…
Congratulations on signing for Liverpool Football Club – how does it feel?
Thank you. I feel great and very privileged.
There was a lot of interest from other clubs around Europe. Why did you choose Liverpool?
It is the biggest club in the world and I’m privileged to be here. I have lots of friends in England so I believe I can cope with switching over. I see myself being a good player here.
For the supporters reading this now, how would you describe yourself as a player?
I’m a striker and I love scoring goals. I love helping my team to victory. I assist a lot and I love scoring goals for my team.
You’re heading out on loan now. What do you want to achieve over the next few months so that you’re ready when you come back to Liverpool?
My aim on loan is to go there and try to develop myself very well so that when I come back to Liverpool I’ll be able to add value to the team.
So when you do come back and we see you in a Liverpool shirt, what can we expect?
When I am in the red shirt, I’ll always give my very best to make the fans happy.
