The Turkish centre back had a lot to say about his first win since joining Liverpool. The Reds beat RB Leipzig 0-2 in the first leg of the Champions League Round of 16 matchup.

“It was so special for me because this was my first clean sheet and my first win in this jersey. I’m a new player, I’m a young player and there’s a lot of stars here. I need a little time to adapt here and with time I will be better I think.
