Thu 29 April 2021 | 14:13

Ozan Kabak went to Anfield on loan last winter, but he can see his contract become permanent due to his great performance.

The defender has told Liverpool's 

official website

: "

Yeah, I'm quite experienced. Champions League, Bundesliga and then Premier League, I had to grow up quick


"At that age, 18 years old, playing in the Champions League and for Galatasaray – like Liverpool – we had to win every game. 

"There's a lot of fans and you need to make them happy every week. They expect a lot from you, so this makes you an adult much quicker. That's exactly what I did at the time.

"For a young lad, I've benefited a lot because obviously playing games helps you to settle into new places or a new league.

"That's why I think adaptation was not that hard for me. I mean, I settled in easier than someone else maybe would."

The Turkish also has the ideal role models around him at Liverpool like 

Virgil van Dijk


Kabak added

: "He (Van Dijk) gave me small tips about our football mentality.

"I think defenders understand each other better and he came with some small tips about how we play or what I need to do. It helps [my] game.

"I analyse every striker before the game with the video analysis. I ask the guys who work in here [for] their videos and I work on it. 

"Before the game I know which foot is stronger and what the abilities are of this striker. It helps me a lot because then it's easier to guess his next movements."
