Bad news Liverpool fans.

Alex Teixeira is showing no signs of failing to adapt to life in China, after bagging his first goal for new club Jiangsu Suning.

The Brazilian was subject to interest from the Reds this January but opted for China in a £38m deal.

That left Liverpool fans with a sour taste in their mouths and this won’t help either, as the former Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder notched his first goal for Suning in a 3-2 win over Jeonbuk Hyundai in the Asian Champions League.

Teixeira’s side won the game 3-2 and the assist for his goal came from fellow Premier League export Ramires, who was later sent off.

He’d have probably scored a penalty in the league cup final too…
