Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates is determined to win a first team place at Anfield - with the help of Luis Suarez.

The centre-back has had two run-outs so far, starting our League Cup tie with Brighton after a substitute appearance against Tottenham.

"I'm trying to adapt as quickly as possible," Coates told Ovacian. "I had to play [against Spurs] and that was very good, although I understand that I will have to wait for my time as there are very good players at Liverpool who have many years in the club.

"Over the last week we've luckily played on very nice days, but the climate is quite strange. Learning the language also takes quite a lot of time, and we're both helping each other learn."
