Cody Gakpo makes Promise to Liverpool fans ahead of Chelsea clash and names Reds man he quickly made friends with
Liverpool’s new signing Cody Gakpo has made a promise heading into the Chelsea game, and also spoke of the fast friendship he’s struck up with one of his teammates.
New Liverpool signing Cody Gakpo made a promise before the meeting with Chelsea, also named the player he has struck up a friendship with already, just weeks after arriving.
Many were shocked by the signing of Gakpo by Liverpool just a few days after Christmas. The Dutchman left the 2022 World Cup as one of the Netherlands’ best performers, having scored three goals in the group stage.
With Liverpool needing new midfielders, a move for another attacker seemed unlikely, but Gakpo was signed before his valuation increased any higher.
The Netherlands International has made a promise heading into the game against Chelsea.
“Of course, in a new team you have to adapt to the style of playing and how other players play around you,” Gakpo told liverpoolfc.com.
“You have to get to know each other. That’s what I’m trying to do and I feel that is getting better every game — and it will be even better in the next one [against Chelsea].”cod
Recently, Curtis Jones revealed that he and Gakpo had already become friends since the latter’s arrival, calling him “an exciting player and a great guy.” The praise was then returned in kind by Gakpo.
Everybody is really nice,” added Gakpo. “Virgil [van Dijk], I’ve known him a little bit longer, from the national team. He is helping me a lot, and Curtis also. Just with the small things they can help me. I really appreciate that from all the guys, so I’m really grateful.
“It’s really great to be here. It’s a really nice, warm club, ” Gakpo continued.
