|Nuri Sahin: New Liverpool player|
Real Madrid convinced Sahin that Liverpool is a good destination. The Turkish midfielder preferred Arsenal (which only offered 2 million euros for his transfer), because he wanted to play the Champions League and given the interest of Wenger, who has been called him several times, it looked the best option. But Sahin still has the consolation that Liverpool are playing the Europa League preview and will be easier for him to take a starting lineup place.
The player traveled to Liverpool yesterday with his agent Fazeli, where he signed the contract, he met his new coach Rodgers and posed with the number 4 Liverpool jersey that he will wear. He said his first words to the club's website: "Xabi Alonso told me to sign for The Reds and Mourinho told me about when he worked with Rodgers at Chelsea. They said me the Premier is the best place".
The new Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin said that has an eye on the Champions League, a competition that "a big club" like yours should play every year: "A big club like Liverpool must play each year the Champions League and we will do our best to be among the top four". Sahin, about to turn 24, joined Real Madrid last season from Borussia Dortmund, where he was named player of the Bundesliga in the 2010-2011 season.
