New Liverpool signing looking to kick-off new challenge against Brighton

Liverpool new-boy Sebastian Coates is looking forward to the challenge of proving himself at the club after his move from Nacional.

Coates impressed in the Summer’s Copa America tournament with Uruguay, earning him a move to the Premier League, and now feels ready to make the most of this opportunity. Talking to LFC Magazine, Coates said: “The biggest attraction was the challenge: to come to an unfamiliar place – a huge club – and make a name for myself so far in my career, I have been very lucky; to play for Nacional, to play in the Copa Libertadores, to win the Copa America. There has been a lot of success in a short period of time. But I have achieved that in a place where I am most comfortable.

“Now, I am here, in a different country, in a different league, with different team-mates. The best players are successful wherever they go. I am determined to become an important player here at a historical stage of the club’s future.”

Coates, 20, is set to make his first start for the club in tonight’s Carling Cup tie away to Brighton.
