Liverpool striker Krisztian Adorjan has said that he hopes a good showing whilst on loan with Dutch side Groningen will stand him in good stead for breaking into the first team at Anfield once he returns, Sky Sports reports.

The 20-year old joined the Reds as a youth player in 2009, but has spent the majority of his time on Merseyside playing in the development squad.

However, his chances of breaking into the first team looked limited once Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto both arrived from Spain this summer, and rather than take it easy in the reserves he has decided to take the plunge and move overseas on a short term deal in order to gain some valuable first team experience.

“Erwin van de Looi told me after my first friendly game in Groningen that he’d like to sign me,” the Hungarian told Nemzeti Sport.

“Liverpool sign complete footballers for their first team, it’s not impossible but very difficult to get in next to Luis Suarez or Steven Gerrard.

“I outgrew the second team so I’m happy that I signed to Holland and I can show myself in the first team of a first division team. It’s important that I can go on with my development here.”

Adorjan also said that the decision to join Groningen was an easy considering the names who had played for them in the past and the record they have with developing those players.

“I’m prepared for the city and the club. This was Luis Suarez’ first club in Europe and Arjen Robben and Erwin Koeman also played here.”
