New Liverpool signing Paul Konchesky has declared that the offer to join former manager Roy Hodgson at Anfield was too good to turn down and is looking to help the club capture some silverware during his time on Merseyside.
The 29 year old joined the Reds after making a deadline day move from Fulham on a four year deal for around £4 million and it is thought that former Liverpool player Danny Murphy, who is now at Craven Cottage, played a big part in persuading the former Charlton player that a move to Anfield would be a very good move. Konchesky told Sky Sports:
“Danny spoke very highly of this club, he told me how well the club is run, how good it is and how special it is to play for. He told me I am going to love every minute of it.”
The former England international knows that expectations on Merseyside are high and is looking to turn the pressure into much needed results to help the club regain a place in the much coveted top four of the Premier League:
“I want to win silverware. I believe this club is capable of doing that and hopefully we can start this year.”
“I have played against Liverpool at Anfield and the crowd are always fantastic towards their team and give them great support. I am looking forward to playing in front of them for Liverpool.”
Konchesky could make his debut for Liverpool as soon as this weekend, as the Reds will put out an XI to take on Everton in Jamie Carragher’s testimonial.
“You look at the background and history they have got and they are one of the most famous names in football. It also helped me with the manager being here who I know well. When Liverpool came in for me it was an easy choice.”
