After the match, the former Benfica and Almeria player spoke to ESPN and admitted that in the first days in the English squad were complicated, but that the support of his teammates and "a talk with Salah" have made his adaptation much lighter.

"The first few weeks I was very nervous, I couldn't get a pass off, for example. It was very difficult to adapt the first few weeks with the team. But as time went on, they made me feel comfortable," he said.

"I had a talk with Salah who helped me a lot, with the Brazilians, with Luis Diaz, who has been here recently as well. It's very difficult to come to a club like Liverpool and not feel that pressure. The truth is that I felt that pressure, the coach talked to me a lot, he is always giving me confidence. And I have to respond to that confidence on the pitch”.
