Hyypia hails Liverpool youngster

Liverpool loanee Joao Teixeira marked his first start for Brighton with a goal in a 2-0 Sky Bet Championship victory at Leeds and drew admiration from Seagulls manager Sami Hyypia.

Of course I am grateful to them for letting Joao come to us and get the games he needs, but it works both ways.

They can benefit too because his time with us can hopefully be a stepping stone towards Liverpool's first team.

He is a young player and Liverpool have a very big squad. A player of his age needs to play games to improve. We have a quality player and I am very happy to have him with us.
