Dnipro's Konoplyanka not looking back at failed Liverpool move

Yevhen Konoplyanka insists he is not thinking about his near move to Liverpool in the winter.

The Ukrainian winger was close to joining the Reds in the January transfer window but ended up staying with Dnipro and is now only focused on his current club.

Dnipro host Tottenham in the Europa League Round of 32 first leg on Thursday night and Konoplyanka says he is only thinking about the Spurs clash and not his failed shift to Anfield.

"Everything that happened is in the past," he said.

"There is a good saying 'everything is for the best' - all we have to do is concentrate on the game for tomorrow, that is all.

"It doesn't influence my game tomorrow and if the coach finds it possible to put me in the team I will do all I can - all I have to think about is that game.

"It is a good chance for any player to play against a team like that. It is a better motivation for us to play tomorrow and do our best."
