Alex Teixeira: Claims Liverpool approach was 'windy'

Alex Teixeira: Claims Liverpool approach was 'windy'

Brazilian forward Alex Teixeira has criticised Liverpool for failing to make a firm proposal to sign him, and has explained his surprise move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning.

The prolific forward has left Shakhtar Donetsk to join the big spending revolution in Chinese football, with Ramires and Jackson Martinez also moving to China in the past week.

Liverpool made two firm attempts to sign Teixeira in the January transfer window, with the club seeing bids of £24.6million and £28million rejected by Shakhtar, before the Ukrainian club refused to sell for less than £53million.

However, Shakhtar accepted an offer of £38million for the player and he will now travel to China to finalise the move.

Teixeira nontheless still admits he still holds hope of one day playing in the Premier League, despite Liverpool’s failed bid.

Speaking to Shakhtar’s official website, he said: “Let’s put it like this: everyone always knew that I wanted to stay in Europe and move to the English Premier League club. But, unfortunately, all the proposals that came from them, were somewhat windy and did not contain anything concrete. Now I have received a serious offer from China.

“I wanted to make it to the English Premier League one day. But until now, all my thoughts have been focused on Shakhtar. As I said, everything happens so fast that I don’t even have time to realize it..”

    Load of bs. Should have rejected move to China and waited for renewed Liverpool bid in summer.

    “Let’s put it this way. Everyone always knew I wanted to stay in Europe and move to the English Premier League club. But unfortunately, all the proposals that came from them were somewhat windy (whatever that’s meant to mean) and did not contain anything concrete. Now,I have received a serious offer from China. Of course, I’m moving there. At this stage,the Brazilian national team will move away from me a little further. But let’s see what happens in the future”

    Sounds like he really wanted the move to Liverpool doesn’t it? If he really wanted to come to Liverpool, why did he not stay at Shakhtar till the summer? Homerjay is spot on

    But, but, ….he liked LFC players on Instagram and stuff, he must have wanted to come!!!

    On a more serious note, if China is now entering the big stage and throwing that kind of money around, can you imagine what impact that will have on an already sky high inflation rate??

    I don’t know the details but I am sure I have heard this before: “…all the proposals that came from them, were somewhat windy and did not contain anything concrete….”. Teixeira publicly declared he wanted to defend our shirt, he might have been given false promise for him to do that. Once he said that, there was virtually no way he could stay there any longer without being abused by his own fans. Imagine the meltdown here if one of our players said he would love to defend another club’s shirt.

    If you don’t meet the asking price you won’t get the player that’s the way the transfer market has always worked.

    You shouldn’t take your frustrations out on the player for Liverpool not being prepared to meet the asking price or blame Teixiera for going to China when he will according to SSN’s allegedly earn £9.6m a year tax free!

    Forget about Teixeira, he wanted money above everything else. All that pretending to want to come to Liverpool to play with Coutinho, was thrown out the door when big money came calling.

    Any player with real ambition, and in the peak of their career, wants to play in the top 5 European Leagues, to develop themselves to the maximum plus play with the best players in the world.

    And as I have asked before, how come at 26 he has never been capped for Brazil, yet our Brazilians Lucas, Coutinho and Firmino have been capped several times?

    Nine,if he really wanted to come to Liverpool,he would have forced Shakhtar to accept our bid,or waited till the summer. He didn’t do either. He pimped himself out,and is now playing in China. As Ginger says,that says everything about his ambition,and also his motivation

    The word for his statement is pathetic what a two faced person, I don’t understand he was desperate to join us his Instagram pic said about joining in the summer and now all of a sudden joins the Chinese league lol what a loser and this shows you how much money is a big influence in football

    suarezsteeth, come on mate in the summer John Stones could not have made it clearer that he wanted to come to Chelsea he even put in a written transfer request to try and force the move through but he couldn’t force his way out players can push it to the limit but clubs won’t sell if they don’t want to or if the offer doesn’t meet the valuation of the selling club and there is nothing that a player can do about that.

    Shaktar were right to hold out for a higherr price because they got it and had Liverpool been the selling club in this situation you I suspect and others would be praising them for holding out.

    As Alex Teixiera has described Liverpool’s bid as windy maybe Ian Ayre needs to take a big packet of Rennie’s with him on his next transfer soirée.😁

    “We should respect we can all make our own decisions. People talk about the financial power of the Premier League,now there is another competitor (China). If you are 26, and got an offer like he got,then anyone would think about it. I have no problem with this” – Herr Klopp
