Nabil El Zhar is delighted with his progress at Liverpool this season.
â€śThe manager has said to me that he wanted to give me more chances in the first-team this season,â€ť El Zhar told the Daily Post. â€śHe told me that I had to work hard and listen to advice and take my opportunities when they come.
â€śHe hasnâ€™t said anything in particular to me. I just know what I have to do, stay focused and take my chance.
â€śI feel that Iâ€™m doing okay, but I know I can do better. I am getting more confident and I am improving with every game, then we will see if I can start games.â€ť
El Zhar arrived at the club having impressed as a support striker but, having been employed on both flanks with Gary Ablettâ€™s reserve side, has fashioned a role as a wing man for Rafa Benitez.
â€śI used to play as a second striker but Iâ€™ve played on the left and right hand side at Liverpool,â€ť he says. â€śI think Iâ€™m better down the right because I am right footed, but I will play anywhere in the forward line.
â€śI hope to play more games this season and prove myself. When you are playing with world class players like Steven Gerrard you can only improve.â€ť
