Gabriel Paletta has revealed he is settling in well at Liverpool.

The 20-year-old arrived at Liverpool from Argentine side Banfield earlier in the summer.

Paletta has yet to feature in the first team this season, but he is tipped as one for the future.

The Argentine admitted he is still coming to terms with life at a big club like Liverpool, but is enjoying the experience.

"I was surprised in the way we did training during the pre-season," said Paletta.

"Nearly all what we did was to work with the ball and then some physical exercises but most of all playing with the ball.

"Another thing that surprised me was when (Steven) Gerrard returned from the World Cup he came to where I was and presented himself.

"Everyone is patient with me and try to explain to me the things I don't stand in the language.

"Even the Spanish players talk to me in English. I am full time with my English lessons."

Paletta is ready to wait for his chance in the first team and is ready to follow the example of compatriot Gabriel Heinze who quickly adapted to the rigours of English football at Manchester United.

"I know that I also have to be patient before playing regularly but Heinze is fine at Manchester United and that surely is because he worked hard and won himself that respect. So I will have to do the same," added Paletta.

"I want to get adapted in the best way as possible and take advantage of every single chance I have."
