Wataru Endo Confident in His Ability to Contribute to Liverpool’s Festive Period
Wataru Endo, the Japan captain, believes he is constantly improving and will play a crucial role for Liverpool during the busy festive period. Endo showcased an impressive performance as the Reds secured a 4-0 victory against LASK in the Europa League group stages at Anfield on Thursday evening.
Although most of Endo’s chances to start this season have been limited to the Europa League, there may be more opportunities for him in the Premier League as Liverpool prepares for a demanding Christmas schedule. Endo feels that he is proving himself ready for the challenge.
He stated, “I’ve played a lot of games already in the Europa League, and I think every game gets better and better. I just try to keep performing well on the pitch. After I arrived here, I had a conversation with the boss about how Liverpool plays. Since then, I’ve been trying to implement that on the field, and he has provided me with valuable guidance.”
Adapting to the Premier League
Endo acknowledges that the Premier League is tougher than he initially anticipated but expresses his happiness to be part of Liverpool. He recognizes the physical demands and the need to adapt quickly but remains determined to improve.
He said, “I’m already 30 years old, but I believe I still have room to grow as a football player. I’m thrilled to be here, and I’m committed to continuous improvement.”
Endo is not only adjusting to a new league but also to the heightened expectations that come with joining a club where every game is considered a must-win. He embraces the challenge and states, “I’m always ready to play every game, that’s the most important thing. Liverpool has a winning mentality, and we strive to secure three points in every match. It’s a difficult task, but that’s why I came here. I thrive under pressure.”
As a defensive midfielder, Endo understands the importance of making a difference in defense while also contributing to the team’s attacking play. He expresses his enjoyment of playing alongside talented teammates.
With his continuous improvement and determination, Wataru Endo is poised to make a significant impact for Liverpool during the upcoming festive period.
