Arsenal target Sahin insists he only wanted Liverpool

Liverpool signing Nuri Sahin is in line to make his debut tomorrow against Arsenal.

Sahin was so determined to be part of Brendan Rodgers' revamped Liverpool that he turned down the chance of Champions League football with Arsenal and the prospect of earning more money elsewhere.

He said: "You don't know me if you think I would move for money. The reason I am here is I know I can play football here, I know I have a manager who trusts in me and the way I play, and I am at a huge club.

"If, at the end of it, I have a difficult decision about staying, then everyone will be happy because it will mean we've had a good season.

"It would be perfect if I had a very hard decision that gave me one or two nights without sleeping."
