Liverpool attacker Carvalho excited for Champions League nights at Anfield

Liverpool signing Fabio Carvalho is looking forward to Champions League nights at Anfield.

The Portuguese youngster is excited for opportunities after making the switch from Fulham this summer.

"Alongside the Premier League, it's the best competition you can play in," the 19-year-old told the official matchday programme. "So yes, I'm really looking forward to that because I feel like that's everyone's dream as a little kid, to play in the Champions League.

"I've heard the Champions League nights here at Anfield are extra special, so I can't wait for that to come around."

He continued: "There are going to be a lot of games and it's going to be a bit stop-start with the World Cup, so we'll just see what happens.

"I know that I need to be ready to play when needed and also to perform at the highest level. Everyone needs to be ready to perform to their best.

"To achieve what we want to achieve, we need to be able to do that, so everyone needs to be prepared and ready to go."
