New Liverpool signing Raul Meireles is happy to have taken the No4 shirt.

Upon arriving at Anfield, ex-Porto star Meireles took possession of the No.4 jersey - despite favouring the No.16 shirt for country, while wearing three for Porto last term.

However, there was significance behind the 27-year-old's decision.

He revealed to liverpoolfc.tv: "I knew the number No.4 once belonged to Sami Hyypia and the supporters liked him because he was a great player for Liverpool. So I have to be great with this number - and I will try to do what I have to do to be great.

"I want to win (trophies) because in Porto I won a lot and I have many titles. But I want to win titles at Liverpool - and we have a chance because we have the players."
