Liverpool defender Sebastian Coates is pleased with the way he's settled at Anfield.

Much of his work to date has been on the training pitch, where he is studying the skills of fellow centre-backs Jamie Carragher, Martin Skrtel and Daniel Agger.

"I think I've done well so far," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "We've won the matches I've played in but I've got lots of time in which to learn, and I am learning, little by little.

"The other centre-backs have treated me well and helped me very much. We have a very healthy competition between us because, logically, a player always wants to play football but they've given me a lot of advice. I've been able to learn a lot from them.

"I hope to play many games for Liverpool and do very well for the club. I hope I'll stay here a long time and contribute much to Liverpool Football Club."
