"Now we are playing very well and we have the level to play in the Champions League," the 26-year-old told the Liverpool website.
"We have really good players and if we continue at this level, we can do it.
"When you are a child, you imagine a lot. Now many people or players speak about that and it's unbelievable for me.
"And also for Liverpool, because in the last two or three years we have not played very well and not demonstrated our level. Now we are back to that.
"You work hard for the supporters and the people. It's important because the last few months were a little difficult for me. Now I've changed and it's okay."
