Liverpool midfielder Conor Coady is still enjoying the aftermath of making his debut in their Europa League defeat to Anzhi.

Coady, 19, was thrilled to start.

He told liverpoolfc.com: "Throughout the game all the lads were brilliant with me. The manager told me to go out and play my own game, to keep it simple and keep us ticking over and play just in front of the back four.

"Carragher was fantastic - as you would expect - and some of the younger lads were superb with me as well."

However, it seems making your Liverpool debut does come at some cost, especially when it is made far overseas in the Russian capital: "I got loads of text messages after the game, so I think the phone bill is going to be a bit higher this month!

"I had lots from my family, who were all proud and they all loved watching me play for the Reds."
