Javier Manquillo gives first interview since joining Liverpool on loan from Atletico [Video]
- August 6, 2014
Javier Manquillo is the latest addition at Liverpool this summer in what has been a fruitful transfer window for Brendan Rodgers and co.
The right-back joins from Atletico on a strange two year loan deal. Having minded Thibaut Courtois for the last three years, it seems as though the La Liga champions are fond of long-term loan deals.
Manquillo spoke for the first time since joining the club about how happy he was to be given the opportunity to play for one of Europe’s biggest clubs: “Any footballer would want to come and play here.
When you are told that Liverpool want to sign you, I think like any other footballer, you are absolutely amazed and you don’t think of anything else but going straight there.”
Liverpool have the option of signing Manquillo permanently for £5 million in 2016.
