Alberto: I moved to Liverpool because of Rogers

24 June 2013 10:19

Luis Alberto's decision to sign for Liverpool was based on his faith in manager Brendan Rodgers.

The deal was confirmed on Saturday as the 20-year-old sealed a £6 million move to Anfield, calling time on his four-year stay at Sevilla.

And Alberto cited Rogers as one of the major influences in his decision to leave La Liga for the Premier League.

"I came to the club because of the manager," the versatile Spaniard told the club's official website. "I came here because of the style of football he plays.

"I don't have a favourite position - it depends on the team's tactics really. I like to move about and I don't mind where I play.

"I like to play with freedom. I'm a technical player. I provide assists and in the penalty area I score goals."

Alberto is one of three players to have bolstered the Anfield ranks so far in the off-season, with Kolo Toure and Iago Aspas also confirmed.

He spent last term on loan with the Barcelona B team, scoring 11 goals and providing 17 assists in his 38 appearances, and claims he benefited greatly from that spell.

"I learned quite a lot at Barcelona," he added. "It has a very good philosophy. You learn a lot from a football point of view. You also learn a lot about how to behave on and off the field."
