FC Volendam forward Dani van der Moot has told Elfvoetbal that he regrets not signing for Liverpool when he had the chance.
According to TEAMtalk, the Reds wanted to land Van der Moot when Brendan Rodgers was in charge of the club and when he was younger.
The 22-year-old striker was considered to be one of the best young strikers in his native the Netherlands when he was coming through at PSV Eindhoven and AZ Alkmaar.
The star is now playing for FC Volendam in the Eerste Divisie in his homeland, and the Dutchman has admitted his disappointment at not switching to Liverpool when he had the chance.
Van der Moot told a Dutch outlet, as translated by TEAMtalk: “If I regret something, it is that I let Liverpool go. There were more clubs from abroad with interest, but Liverpool was the most concrete.
“I visited [with] my parents for a day and was given a tour of the stadium, complex and city. They showed me what I could expect if I started playing soccer and living there. A beautiful day and a wonderful memory forever.”
The Reds have moved on from their reported interest in the player, and given the success, they have achieved in the last few seasons under manager Jurgen Klopp, it does not seem that Liverpool are missing the striker at all.
As for Dani, he is still only 22 years of age, and there is still time for the player to earn a move to a big club.
