Awoniyi: Why my time at Liverpool was great even without competitive games

 The 24-year-old Nigerian striker spent six years with the Reds but did not play in the Premier League before his permanent move to Berlin in July

Taiwo Awoniyi said his time at Liverpool was a ‘great’ period for his career, even though he did not make a competitive appearance for the club.

The Union Berlin forward could not break into Jurgen Klopp’s team during his six-year stay at Anfield due to a lack of a UK work permit and he was sent out on loan to six different clubs.

He delivered impressive performances during the loan stints and the last one was in the Bundesliga, which earned him a permanent move to Urs Fischer's side in July.
