ARGENTINE starlet Emiliano Insua is determined to make the grade at Liverpool.
The 18-year-old left-back made an impressive debut for the reserves in a friendly against Preston this week.
Insua arrived at Anfield on an 18-month loan deal from Boca Juniors last month and has his sights firmly set on breaking into the first team and making the move permanent.
"Signing for Liverpool was a fantastic moment and one I didn't expect at such a young age," he said. "Every Argentinian footballer sets out to play in Europe.
"I just want to make the most of the opportunity. I know how fortunate I am to be at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
"The first thing is to get into the first team here as quickly as possible. The next one is to consolidate my place for a long time. Then my ambitions are to win trophies.
"Rafa has told me it's a hard, physical game here in England and that I'll need to adapt.
"I've just got to learn and get used to the speed of the game."
Insua, who has a European passport courtesy of his Spanish grandparents, has already represented Argentina at under-20 level.
Growing up in Buenos Aires, he joined Boca Juniors at the age of eight and rose up through the youth ranks.
He admits the move from South America to Merseyside has taken some getting used to.
"I'm doing my best to settle in," he said. "I'm living with a local family to help me settle in. My brother has come over with me for company.
"I started English classes and will do them every day.
"I try to speak to the English lads, but obviously at the minute I'm relying a lot on the Spanish speaking players."
