“I like Liverpool a lot more, it’s a more direct (style of play), more offensive, maybe less organized,” he continued.

“But more intense football, when you do not have the ball possession, you are more intense.”

“In Liverpool they are more individual players, especially in the midfield, usually playing three very aggressive players and recovering the ball, then they have three players at the front who are lethal,” the player concluded.
