Playing career

Before his transfer to Liverpool, Pacheco enjoyed a reputation as a rising star in the ranks of Barcelona's youth academy. Such was his ability to score goals from almost any position, teammates nicknamed him El Asesino ("The Killer").[2][3]

Pacheco made his first start for the Liverpool reserves on 5 February 2008, against Bolton Wanderers. He scored the first goal of the game, a low curling shot past Ian Walker. In April 2008, Pacheco made a 50-yard pass to assist Krisztián Németh in scoring the only goal of the game against Blackburn Rovers Reserves, which secured the Premier Reserve League North title for Liverpool. On 7 May 2008, Pacheco, who came on as a substitute in the second half, threaded a through pass to teammate Lucas Leiva to score the third and final goal in Liverpool's Reserve League final victory over Aston Villa at Anfield.[4]

He made his first team debut on 9 December 2009, as a second half substitute for Alberto Aquilani in a UEFA Champions League match against Fiorentina.[5][6] His league debut came just over two weeks later on Boxing Day when he replaced Aquilani once more in a 2-0 home win over Wolverhampton Wanderers. On 18th February 2010, Pacheco came on as a substitute in the 75th minute for Aquilani in a UEFA Europa League match vs Unirea Urziceni, six minutes later he provided an assist for David N'Gog when he headed a pass back across goal for N'Gog to score the match-winning goal.

Daniel Pacheco Lobato (born January 5, 1991 in Malaga) is a Spanish football player who currently plays for Liverpool. He was signed from FC Barcelona in the summer of 2007, and is expected to initially play in the Liverpool reserve team. His move to Liverpool continues a trend of highly-rated teenage players such as Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Piqué, and Francisco Merida leaving FC Barcelona for the Premier League, resulting from the fact that youth players in Spain are unable to sign professional contracts until the age of 18.

Prior to his transfer to Liverpool, Pacheco enjoyed the reputation of being a rising star within the ranks of Barcelona's youth academy. Such was his ability to score goals from almost any position, that fans nicknamed him "The Killer".

Pacheco made his first start for the Liverpool reserves on February 5, 2008 against Bolton Wanderers. He scored the first goal of the game, a low curling shot past the hands of former England national goalkeeper Ian Walker. In April 2008, Pacheco made a 50-yard pass to assist Krisztián Németh in scoring the only goal of the game against Blackburn Rovers Reserves, which secured the Premier Reserve League North title for Liverpool. On May 7, 2008, Pacheco, who came on as a substitute in the second half, threaded a through pass to teammate Lucas Leiva to score the third and final goal in Liverpool's Reserve League final victory over Aston Villa at Anfield.
