Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne says he is thrilled to score his first Reds goal after summer move
Nathaniel Clyne says he is thrilled to score his first Liverpool goal after the defender netted the winner in a 1-0 victory over Bournemouth on Wednesday night.
The England international was alert in the penalty area to finish from close ranger after Joao Carlos Teixeira’s back-heel attempt had left the Cherries defence in disarray.
Clyne’s first-half winner was enough to secure Liverpool’s progress into the Capital One Cup quarter-finals, and the Reds will face his former employers Southampton for a place in the last four.
And the 24-year-old full-back took to Instagram to reflect on a memorable night in his fledgling Liverpool career.
Clyne wrote on the photo-sharing app: “Happy to score my first goal for @liverpoolfc and glad to be in the next round of the cup!⚽️🔴”
The Liverpool star has already become a key part of the Reds side after having made 14 appearances in all competitions this season.
Clyne moved to the Merseyside outfit in a reported £12.5m deal from Southampton in the summer as the Reds continued their theme of poaching the Saints’ best players.
