Kolo Toure believes Liverpool can secure qualification for the Champions League next season. "We want to win trophies, but we want to play in the Champions League as well," the 32-year-old Ivory Coast international said.

"This club is a winning club. I want to be part of history here."

When asked if Champions League qualification was realistic next season, the former Manchester City defender said: "Of course we believe we can achieve that.

"I think with the squad we have got we can do very well this season. Liverpool have the history, quality, players and mentality.

"We just want to take the team as far as we can, to the top four or to win a trophy.

"To bring the club back to the Champions League would be amazing and that is what I am looking for."
