“The support from the fans has been unbelievable. The game when they were singing all the songs about me, it was difficult to focus on the game! It was such a good experience for me and I’d never experienced anything like it before.
“That is why I am so happy here. That for me is Liverpool Football Club.
“I feel I belong here and as long as the manager and the owners want me, I’ll be here.”
