Larouci opens up on why he rejected new Liverpool contract to quit Anfield


Yasser Larouci has explained why he rejected a new contract at Liverpool to join French outfit Troyes on a five-year deal

The 20-year-old informed Liverpool 12 months ago that he wouldn't extend his stay at Anfield.

And despite attempts to persuade him to change his mind and remain at the club, the defender chose to make himself available to be snapped up by Ligue 1 side, Troyes who are owned by City Football Group that controls Manchester City.

Larouci made two FA Cup appearances for Liverpool in 2020, coming off the bench as an early substitute in the third round win over Everton and then starting at Shrewsbury Town in the next round.

He also played twice in the EFL Trophy and was part of the Reds side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2019.

Despite rejecting a new deal, the defender has expressed his gratitude about the role that Liverpool have played in the progression of his career.

Larouci, speaking on his Instagram about his move to Laurent Batlles' side, said: "Playing regularly has always been my principal objective.

"I decided against extending my contract at Liverpool as it was clear that there would be limited opportunities to play regularly in the first team in the immediate future.

"It is important nevertheless to acknowledge the support I received at the club particularly from Jurgen Klopp who was pivotal in me taking my first steps as a professional."
