New Liverpool signing Christian Poulsen believes he has a lot to live up to after finally sealing his switch from Serie A outfit Juventus. The Denmark international has penned a three-year deal at Anfield and he links up with manager Roy Hodgson again after their spell together with FC Copenhagen in the Danish Superliga. Poulsen, who can also list Schalke and Sevilla among his former clubs, is looking forward to his new challenge. Speaking to reporters, he said: "With this move here I have a lot to prove. "If you come to a club like Liverpool, you have to deliver. I will hopefully show I can be a good player for Liverpool." The 30-year-old is looking forward to getting to work with Hodgson once more and he has admitted it took little persuasion from his new coach for him to join the Merseysiders. "I had two good years with him so I hope to carry that on, and hopefully he'll be satisfied with my qualities," he added. "He's a manager who's been all over the world and has a lot of experience, so of course I have a lot of respect for him. "Roy didn't have to say that much because Liverpool is known all around the world, and for people in Denmark, Liverpool are the biggest club in England."
