Liverpool's Babel: Gerrard great example

Ryan Babel says his rapidly improving form is down to the assistance of his Liverpool teammates.

The young Dutch winger told liverpoolfc.tv : "I watch the other lads who've played for Liverpool for a few years and they help me a lot.

"Even Steven Gerrard learns a lot every day. I am just at the beginning of my career so it's only logical to say I am still learning."

The Dutch international admits seven months spent under the tutelage of Rafa Benitez at Melwood have helped him grow as a footballer.

"We talk a lot about different things, not just about how to improve my game but also how to improve the play of the team," he revealed. "Tactically, defensively and offensively. I can definitely improve."
