Manu Lanzini has put loads of rumours to bed by announcing: “I am very happy here.”
The brilliant midfielder has been linked with both merseyside clubs in recent days and brought an immediate denial from the club today.
An Lanzini is more than content at the club declaring: “The season was good for me on a personal level. At the beginning it was not great [as I suffered an injury on international duty in pre-season], but then I could achieve a good level.
“Dimi (Payet) is a great player. He left and it was not a good news for the squad but luckily at the end I had a very good season.
“[With the win over Tottenham], we achieved the points to stay in Premier League, which was the most important thing. We did not have a good start of the season, but now we need to think in the next game and the next season.
“For now, I am thinking of the next game then thinking of having good holidays with the family. I am very happy here.
“We did not start [the season] as we expected but we had few problems and injures to deal with and now we have to work hard for the forthcoming season.
“All changes need time to adapt to. The pitch and the stadium are much bigger than the previous ones [at the Boleyn Ground]. Now we have adapted to these changes and we achieved our target of remaining in Premier League.
“Next year, if we work hard, we will get a better result.”
So vital we keep this lad. He’s got us out of jail so often and he has so much class.
Hopefully he’ll stay because I bet he’s enjoying being the heart of our attack.
I hope he stays but I see one of the big clubs in europe coming in with a very big offer he can get into any of the top teams he is that good
