United States Under-20 full-back Shaquell Moore believes he has improved a lot at Levante and has learnt a lot from new signing Coke.
His new teammates, signed from Schalke in January, won three Europa League titles with Sevilla while 20-year-old Moore has acted as his understudy.
“I have built up a good relationship with Coke,” Moore told an interview with Marca.
“It is important to have players like him coming in as it is vital for me to learn from those sorts of players who have achieved so much and won a lot, I have learned a lot from him.
“Everything here has been a whirlwind…to play against Messi was incredible, but I must focus on improving as a player.
“There was an option for me to leave on loan but it was agreed from everyone that I stay here, that I make the most of my minutes on the pitch and my time in training.
“I am only focused on Levante and not on the USA, but of course it would be fantastic to be in a generation of players for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.”
Moore played in the youth teams of Huracan and Real Oviedo before joining the Valencia-based side last year.
