“I expected that I would get a chance at Liverpool sooner. Before I came, we talked about it. They said that if I had a good first season, I had a good chance of joining the first-team,” he said.

“Being left out of the pre-season tour in the United States was disappointing and contributed to the fact that I don’t want to renew my contract.
