“Massive win, It’s really important for us. Three more points in our fight against a really, really good team.”
Neves further added saying:
“One of the big six. I think we showed in the last two games against them that we could beat this team and we did it. A fantastic game for us. We started the game really well. Two goals.”
“Then, at the start of the second half, we knew they would come at us with everything, as they did. We needed to suffer a little bit. We needed to stick together and we did really well.”
The Reds were really close to signing Neves in this winter transfer window but the deal could not take place due to the financial difficulties of the English giants.
