Soto signs with Liverpool

A two year deal with the option of a further year signed on Friday Sotiris Kyrgiakos with Liverpool FC after completing his medical exams. Sotis will be the new No. 16 in Liverpool’s roaster.
"I feel very proud to join such a big club. It is a great achievement, not only for me but also on behalf of other Greek players," the 30-year-old told reporters as he was unveiled to the media at Melwood.

Kyrgiako’s statement

In all my life I didn’t hide under any circumstances. I always took the risk of my decisions. That’s how I was raised. Last week I made a statement in which I was saying that I will be a player of AEK FC for the next four years. Today, my biggest challenge in life contradicts to what I was saying. That’s life. Many times it plays tricky games.

Kyrgiako's statement

Answering for the first time in my life to a newspaper article I have to say that: 

I never go on a yacht because I feel seasick. I can’t understand why the legal dispute that I have with Panathinaikos, and it is not final yet, many people consider it as a proposal from the team.

I never had a proposal from Panathinaikos. Why every time that Panathinaikos looks for a stopper it has to be my name on their list. Let Panathinaikos find a stopper and leave us all alone.

Alex McLeish's statement

Rangers manager, Alex McLeish, when asked by reporters about Sotirios Kyrgiakos answered without making anything clear.
 
«The purchase of Pierre-Fanfan had nothing to do with Kyrgiakos» he claimed repeating an earlier statement he had made upon completing the transfer of Pierre-Fanfan.
