Benitez: Looking to future
New Liverpool teenager Jakub Sokolik admits it is a dream come true to have moved to Anfield and hopes to have earned a first-team place in the next three to four years.
The Czech Republic starlet signed for the Reds in August after leaving Banik Ostrava, who are reportedly to receive £1million if the defender makes an appearance.
Sokolik confesses his move to Rafa Benitez's Premier League club has come as a shock, but the 16-year-old is also determined to make an impact.
He told deniksport: "It is a dream come true and I take it as a massive opportunity.
"So far it is just a chance. I know that I have a long, long way to go to get into Liverpool's first team.
"I have a plan that I would like to get into the first team within the next three to four years. Now it is up to me to do my best and achieve it."
