“It's My First Transfer And Of Course I Have To Adapt"_Cody Gakpo On His Liverpool Form

Cody Gakpo secured a move to Liverpool over the Christmas period and has oppened up on his own struggles since joining the club.


“I think everybody knows we are a little bit struggling in every area so it is more difficult for a new player to come in.”

“But that doesn’t stop me from trying to improve. I can do a lot more.

“For me, I see every difficulty as a possibility.

I realise you don’t have all the time in the world so it’s up to me to perform and figure it out as quickly as possible, even though I might not have the best relationships yet.”

At the 2022 World Cup, Gakpo starred for Netherlands, scoring three goals in five games before the Dutch were dramatically beaten by Argentina on penalties.

Current Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman has questioned whether Gakpo joined Liverpool too early.

In response, Gakpo said:

“When I got the opportunity to come to a massive club like this, I don’t wait for five years more!.

I see it more as a challenge.
“It’s my first transfer and of course I have to adapt.

I might make certain movements on the pitch that the other players don’t know.

“For example, what Thiago does when he gets the ball, maybe I have to move a little bit differently.

It’s just learning about each other and getting better.”

Gakpo had scored nine goals and made 12 assists in 14 Eredivisie matches for PSV Eindhoven this season before joining Liverpool.

It’s a contrast to his current performances at Liverpool, which the 23-year-old revealed has affected him.

“I’m an attacking player so I like to score goals and give assists,”

“When you don’t, anyone would be lying if they said it didn’t affect them.

“You are judged on that so it’s something I need to get back as quickly as possible.

“It would be amazing to come into a team that won every game but I don’t think it’s bad to come into this situation.

During times like this you improve things you don’t know about yourself.

“We know we have to improve and start winning. We have so much quality but we all have to step up as a team.”
