Liverpool striker Pacheco using Suso as inspiration

Liverpool striker Dani Pacheco is eager to follow good friend Suso into the first team.

The 21-year-old has consistently remained on the fringes of the senior squad since joining from Barcelona back in 2007, making 17 appearances in a Red shirt.

"I haven't played as much as I would like this season, but in football things can change very quickly," the versatile forward told the Liverpool Echo.

"Look at what's happened with Suso. He was given a chance and he took it. He has worked really hard and has been playing every week. He is doing very well and I'm happy for him.

"I must try to do the same. I hope I'll get a chance and then it's down to me to take it. I train with the first team every day and if I didn't have the belief that I could become a regular here I would have left already.

"I'll try to make sure that in the near future that happens. If it doesn't happen I will move on and try to make it somewhere else. But I still hope and believe I can make it at Liverpool."
