Raul Meireles admits he was convinced about moving to Liverpool by Manchester United winger Nani.

The Portuguese midfielder spoke to Manchester United winger Nani about the prospect of playing in England and in front of the famous Anfield crowd.

"Nani told me that I would enjoy playing in the Barclays Premier League and my style would suit it," Meireles told LFC Weekly.

"He only had good things to say about the stadiums and the supporters even though he plays for Manchester United, he said the atmosphere inside Anfield was very good.

"I think I have the maturity now to settle quickly without too many problems. I have a settled family who are very supportive. When you have a family behind you it makes everything a lot easier. I think that shows when I play."
