As the reserves prepare for tonight's showdown with Manchester City we continue our series of second-string interviews with Stephen Sama.
The former Borussia Dortmund defender arrived at the club's Academy back in the summer of 2009 and has since earned rave reviews for his displays at U18 level.
A Germany youth international, Sama has made solid progress this season and has begun to make an impression upon the reserve team squad.
Here he tells us what he learned from training with Carra and why a shirt worn by Nigeria legend, Sunday Oliseh is one of his most prized possessions.
Best individual moment in a match?
It's not really a moment in a match. The best feeling I've had in football was when I first made the move from Cameroon, Africa to Germany. To actually be in Europe playing for a football team was a dream come true for me. It was great to play football on a normal pitch and not on stone.
I love Anfield. I've played there a few times in the FA Youth Cup and I loved it. If I was looking at grounds across Europe then Borussia Dortmund would be up there. It's where I came from. I'd love to play at the Signal Iduna Park for Liverpool against them!
Which other team's results do you look out for?
I support the club I play for. I am only interested in Liverpool. I am pleased Dortmund are doing so well in the Bundesliga and they look like they will be champions. I am pleased for them and my old friend Mario Gotze who is now in their first-team. But Liverpool is my only focus.
First football shirt owned?
That was with my first club SW Eppendorf. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean another player giving me a shirt?
It can be either - have you swapped shirts with many players?
No, not really. But Sunday Oliseh, the former Nigeria international who played for Ajax and Borussia Dortmund gave me his shirt when I was playing for Bochum. He came there on loan just before I moved to Dortmund and he looked out for me. After one particular game he sought me out and gave me his shirt. I really appreciated that. He also gave me good advice and told me to keep working hard.
Who do you model your game on?
I used to love watching William Gallas when he was at his best with Arsenal and Chelsea. I've since trained with Jamie Carragher on a few occasions and he is the one who has taught me the most. He reads the game so well and has helped me with my positional play.
What are you main strengths?
I don't like to say I am good at certain things because I want to improve every part of my game. I am not ready for the first-team yet and so I just want to work hard and become a better player in every aspect. If I want to mark the likes of Didier Drogba, Carlos Tevez and Robin Van Persie then I need to keep improving.
What's your favourite piece of skill?
(Laughs). I leave the skill to the likes of Raheem (Sterling) and Michael (Ngoo).
Last album downloaded?
I haven't downloaded anything for ages. I just give my iPod to Matty McGiveron and he puts all the latest tracks on it for me. I like Jay-Z but sometimes when I'm a bit stressed I listen to chilled out music like Elton John and Elvis!
Last film watched?
Blood Diamond with Leonardo DiCaprio. It's my favourite film. I keep watching it over and over again.
Favourite TV show?
I watch German TV at home. I prefer it to English TV but if I watch the channels from this country it helps me with the language. I think BBC 2 is the best channel here. It has a lot of interesting shows on it.
I would like to say Toni Silva but he'll kill me! (Laughs). Hmm... That's a naughty question. I don't want to upset anyone. I'm going to say me to be safe!
Worst taste in music?
I'd like to say Toni Silva again because he's the DJ in our changing room. Yeah, I'll say him!
Best mate in the squad?
I hang out with Toni a lot. We go to the cinema and play FIFA online. We are both loving life in Liverpool.
Who's the top dog on FIFA then?
I gave my Playstation to my brother the last time I went back to Germany so I'm not so great at the moment. Toni seems to have improved his FIFA skills. I keep getting hammered every time we play. He picks Real Madrid and I play as Barca but when he goes three or four ahead I just give up the pad!
Toni Silva (laughs).
Teammate who spends longest in the mirror?
(Laughs again). You know who I am going to say don't you? Toni!
Most skilful teammate?
Raheem and Toni. I like playing against them in training because they are both very talented players. If you have to cope with them in training it sets you up for game situations.
Best ever player in your position?
I'm not picking the greatest ever. That's too difficult. In terms of the best at this very moment, I have to say Pepe at Real Madrid. He has everything. He is aggressive, has good passing, pace, good heading - everything to be a top player.
Best thing about playing for LFC?
I'm just happy to be here. I love every minute I spend at this club. I never thought that I would ever go from living in Cameroon to playing for this great club. I just want to work hard and make the most of it all.
