The defender has signed for Arda Kardzhali after coming off contract at Liverpool over the summer.
He told LFC Stories: “It's tough for lads who are out of contract. You're working hard but nothing is set in stone. You're looking for your next job. It can be a difficult time. A lot of lads are in the same situation, looking for clubs, and there are only so many that can be taken.
“When [the offer from Arda] came up, I had a call about it. They wanted me to sign. I came over and spoke to the club. It was exciting, a new, fresh challenge for me. You come out of your comfort zone a little bit by moving abroad.
“It's different, but I think I've settled in well. A few of the lads speak English, and I'm trying to pick up a few words in Bulgarian. Not many of the lads understand the Scouse accent here, so when I speak English, it doesn't really translate well – I'm going to have to pick up on my Bulgarian a bit."
