‘I could stay in the Netherlands, but who says Liverpool knocks again? ‘

Sepp van den Berg does not regret his transfer to Liverpool. The young defender left PEC Zwolle two years ago to try his luck at Anfield.

So far, the 19-year-old Zwollenaar only got into action in cup matches for Liverpool, which rented him to Preston North End in the Championship this winter. โ€œBut I didnt expect me to play at Liverpool,โ€ says Van den Berg to De Stentor. โ€œRemember, I was only 17 when I went that way. From Zwolle to Liverpool is a very big step.โ€
The defender has no regret. โ€œI could stay in the Netherlands, but who says they
ll knock again? And say no to a club like Liverpool. Thats just really hard. But Im glad I did. You just develop very quickly when you train with such players. And physically, youre getting stronger. In that I have made really big steps.โ€
At Preston, the number eleven of the Championship, he now has to make more minutes. โ€œAlthough not the highest level in England, it really is not so much less than the Premier League. I really don
t underestimate that competition either. Take the number of clubs alone: 24, which means you play three duels almost every week. And physically its really hard.โ€
