Dominik Szoboszlai says Liverpool move has already surpassed his expectations

Dominik Szoboszlai has described Liverpool as one of the 'biggest clubs in the world' as he continues to enhance his reputation with a series of eye-catching displays.

The Hungarian midfielder joined the club earlier this summer for a fee believed to be in the region of £60m and has been one of Liverpool's most consistent players so far, scoring his first goal for the club in the Reds' 3-0 win against Aston Villa earlier this month.

Speaking to Liverpool's official website ahead of the Premier League clash against West Ham United, Szoboszlai admitted that he fulfilled a dream by signing for the club.

He said: "I worked a lot to become a player of Liverpool. It was a dream. But I think for every football player it's a dream to play for Liverpool, it's one of the biggest clubs in the world."

"And also the fans, the club, the history and that you can play with these legends and players that I'm playing with, it's a pleasure to be here. Just the fans, just the stadium, just the team, just the history of the club – everything.

"I want to achieve a lot of things this year and not only this [year] but the next couple of years as well."

The 22-year-old also spoke highly about playing at Anfield, adding that the reception he has received thus far has exceeded his lofty expectations.

He said: "It's really nice. It's even better than I was thinking. As I said, I want to play as many times as I can. I'm enjoying, they are enjoying and [if] everybody is enjoying then I'm happy."

Szoboszlai has been an ever-present in the Premier League for Liverpool but was a second-half substitute in the Reds' 3-1 win against LASK in the UEFA Europa League. He's expected to return to the starting XI on Sunday as Liverpool prepare to host West Ham in what could be an intriguing contest at Anfield.
