Sepp van den Berg: Why I chose Liverpool over PSV, Bayern Munich

Sepp van den Berg admits he had other offers apart from Liverpool last summer.

The former PEC Zwolle defender chose Liverpool ahead of proposals from PSV Eindhoven and Bayern Munich.

He revealed to De Telegraaf: “I thought: how then? That such clubs were interested was almost unreal. I wasn't even a basic player in the national youth teams.

"I also saw PSV as a very nice option, I also liked that club from an early age.

"Only the feeling at Liverpool is ... Yes, so big, but really a family club. The heat here is special. If you come to the club, you will not get a hand, but a hug from manager Jürgen Klopp."
