“That’s the most important thing,” added the midfielder. “We’ve felt at home from the very first day. As Antony said [about learning English], it’s difficult, and we’ll be studying, as learning the language is very important.
“The club, our team-mates and the coaching staff have always made us feel at home.”
Both players have key games on the radar with the Reds before participating in the World Cup finals in Qatar for Brazil.
“My first call up to the Selecao was this year so it’s a wonderful experience for me,” explained Antony. “I’ve always dreamed of putting on the Brazil shirt, today I can live that dream leading up to a World Cup.
“Putting on the national-team shirt, representing your country and your family is very important to me. I hope to be putting it on more and more and make history with the Brazilian national team.”
