Aurelio: Only Liverpool for me

Aurelio said: “I was linked a lot last season with Real Madrid but as soon as I knew Rafa Benitez really wanted me to come here my mind was made up that I would come on this adventure to England.

“It really wouldn’t have mattered who came in for me after, my mind had been made up to come here to Anfield.

“My wife and I spend time every week studying English because we feel it is vitally important that we integrate ourselves into the English way of life fully.

“Neither of us have come over here for a holiday, so we want to live life the same way as everyone else.”
