Sahin: Alonso Convinced Me To Join LFC

Posted by

Liverpool’s latest signing Nuri Sahin has revealed that Xabi Alonso convinced him to make his move to Anfield.

The 23-year-old midfielder completed his season-long loan switch from Real Madrid yesterday.

Sahin said:

“I spoke with Xabi lots of times. When he heard Liverpool were interested in me, he started telling me about Liverpool. He is still in love with Liverpool Football Club. It’s crazy how he was telling me about Liverpool. He was saying ‘go there, you will love it. The fans will take care of you and love you’ and things like that. He said Anfield is the best stadium in the world. Xabi won a lot of trophies here, and hopefully we can do that too.”

Welcome to the club Nuri
