Cody Gakpo Makes Confession On “Biggest Challenges” He’s Faced Since His Arrival At Liverpool

Cody Gakpo addressed the few ups and downs he’s experienced since his involvement with the Premier League club.

The 24-year-old has already made three appearances for the Reds, where he played one Premier League game against Brighton and the other two was at FA Cup vs Wolverhampton.

Gakpo marked his debut game at Anfield against Wolverhampton in the FA Cup in a game which doesn’t seems to go his way as he tried to play with much expectations from the fans.

The Dutch attacker discussed the troubles and challenges he has faced as a Liverpool player in the red shirts while describing the difference with the Premier League football and that of Eredivise at Holland.

“The game is really fast and I like it. The biggest difference is the speed of the game. It’s faster than in the Eredivisie.”

“Normally, at PSV, we would have the build-up and it takes a long time before we get to the goal. Here, we try to go for goal as fast as possible in a good way and the opponent as well.”

“There are a lot of different things than in Holland, but it is up to me to adjust as quickly as possible.”

When the Dutchman was asked about his adjustments to suit with the style of play at Liverpool he replied.

“I feel that’s coming. Of course, in a new team you have to adapt to the style of playing and how other players play around you. You have to get to know each other.”

“That’s what I’m trying to do and I feel that is getting better every game and it will be even better in the next one. We have a really good group, with a lot of quality and we are really together.”

“Everybody is determined to win and to perform for the club and for the fans. When you win a game at Wolves, then that is good for everybody, for the mood, and that’s something we can build on. We gained confidence.”

“We have to keep working hard, improving every day and the wins will come.”
