New Liverpool signing Sebastian Coates has revealed that Luis Suarez had a big influence in his decision to move to Anfield.
The Uruguay international defender joined Liverpool yesterday from Nacional Montevideo.
The 20 year old centre back told liverpoolfc.tv: “Luis told me a lot about Liverpool – but about the fans more than anything else.
“He told me how passionate they are about the club and how supportive they are.
“I saw that myself on Saturday when the fans really got behind their side against Bolton and that was great to see.
“Luis also told me about the history and the tradition of the club and now I feel very happy and excited to be here because I have left one great club in Nacional and signed for another great club with a fantastic history.
“To come to such a big club alongside a fellow countryman is very important for me. I know Luis will help me settle in, we have the same cultures and customs so having him around will help me a lot.”
