LIVERPOOL’s star signing Cody Gakpo admitted he got “sloppy” on his debut against Wolves.
Gakpo started for the Reds in Saturday’s FA Cup third-round tie at Anfield after his £37million move from PSV Eindhoven.
The Merseysiders drew 2-2 and the winger failed to have an impact before being replaced by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on 84 minutes.
The Netherlands international gave himself an honest assessment after the final whistle as he conceded he struggled at times against Julen Lopetegui’s side.
But the 23-year-old is confident that he will drastically improve in the next few matches with Liverpool, including the FA Cup replay with Wolves.
Gakpo told Liverpoolfc.com: “Really great atmosphere.
“For my own game, I think I showed some good moments and some sloppy moments.
“So, I can also still improve on those points and keep working and try to help the team as much as I can.
“Of course, you learn the most when you’re playing games, so I’m looking forward [to more].”
Gakpo added: “I think we played in phases really good football but in the end, we didn’t score enough, so that’s a pity.
“But I think we showed what we could do, but we can still improve on some points and let’s work on that. I think we showed real team spirit at moments, so that’s good.
“I think we have to go there [Molineux] with great determination and just go for the win.”
Boss Jurgen Klopp was also honest about his new signing.
He told ITV: “He fitted into the game. It was not easy for a first step.
“We cannot expect it to be perfect, but he showed good signs. We have to get him in better positions but that will come no doubt.”
