El Zhar happy with progress at Liverpool

Nabil El Zhar is delighted with his progress this season at Liverpool.

"I used to play as a second striker but I've played on the left and right hand side at Liverpool," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "I think I'm better down the right side because I am right footed but I will play anywhere in the forward line for the team.

"I 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 as a player."

Things are also blossoming on the international front for El Zhar. He scored on his senior bow against Belgium earlier this year and is a regular member of the Morocco squad as they bid to reach the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa.

"It was a great feeling to score on my first appearance for Morocco," he said. "It's always special to play for your country. In Morocco they always watch the Liverpool matches and my international teammates always ask me about two players - Gerrard and Torres.

"It would be fantastic to play in South Africa for my country but there is a long way to go."
