Liverpool's Babel wants striker role

Ryan Babel admits he wants a striker's role at Liverpool.

The former Ajax star told the Liverpool Echo: "I always say that up front is my best position.

"The boss knows that so I can only wait for my chance. I will then try to take it.

"But I'm happy to play down the left or the right also. I can play in those positions and at the moment it's important for me to play a lot of games.

"Competition for places up front is fierce, but I don't mind that."
