Hoffenheim attacker Ryan Babel has hit out at former club Liverpool.

Babel says he was never played in his favoured position at the Reds.

He told Sport1 Voetbalmagazine: "Look, for most English clubs the players are not out and out wingers. That broke me at Liverpool.

"I was not properly managed. I felt I was often alone, but generally I behaved nicely. Pity that I could not have been more important for Liverpool."
