Konchesky admits Fulham captain Murphy convinced him about Liverpool

Paul Konchesky admits Fulham captain Danny Murphy had a big say in his move to Liverpool.

Murphy spent seven years with the Reds between 1997 and 2004 and told Konchesky that he would enjoy his time on Merseyside, although the new signing admits he did not need much convincing.

"Danny spoke very highly of this club," he remarked. "He told me how well the club is run, how good it is and how special it is to play for. He told me I am going to love every minute of it.

"I have played against Liverpool at Anfield and the crowd are always fantastic towards their team and give them great support. I am looking forward to playing in front of them for Liverpool.

"You look at the background and history they have got and they are one of the most famous names in football. It also helped me with the manager being here who I know well. When Liverpool came in for me it was an easy choice."
