Liverpool new boy Maxi Rodriguez insists he is enjoying life at Anfield following his arrival on a free from Atletico Madrid last month.

Argentine ace Rodriguez joined the Reds during the January transfer window and has started their last two matches.

He believes he is getting used to the style of English football.

"It's going fantastic so far and I couldn't have hoped for better," Rodriguez told the club's official website. "It's so different to daily life in Madrid, but I think I am settling in and it's even better here than I expected it to be.

"Gradually as the weeks have gone by, I've been getting used to daily life in the city. I think it will be even better when I'm more settled.

"It's totally different here to the football in La Liga. Certainly you are aware of the fact it is a lot more physical, tougher and aggressive - they are the big differences.

"But wherever you play football in the world, you still play with a round ball, so you get used to it.

"What's more, I really like the competitive, physical aspect of the game. I think it suits my style and I'm enjoying it."
