Liverpool FC today completed the signing of Nigeria youth international Taiwo Awoniyi, who immediately heads out on loan to FSV Frankfurt. But first he spoke to Liverpoolfc.com about his privilege at joining the club.
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.
