Aberdeen loanee Ward intent on becoming Liverpool no.1

Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward has expressed his desire to become the Reds' number one between the sticks one day in the future.

Ward is currently out on loan at Scottish side Aberdeen and the youngster has managed to impress with a host of quality performances for the Dons.

On the basis of his displays this term, Ward looks more than capable of becoming Liverpool's number one goalkeeper and the 22-year-old has now stated that he hopes to step up at Anfield in the coming years.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ward said: "Scotland has been very enjoyable. Getting regular games has been massive. I might not be called on for 80 minutes and then have an important save to make. It is similar to being a big club in England, like Liverpool. It can be only good for the future.

"It is definitely an ambition of mine to be Liverpool's first-choice. I have a self-belief where I think I can play at the highest level. Ideally that's at Liverpool, that would be fantastic.

"They gave me a new long-term contract before I came up. I took it to mean they think I have got a chance. Long term, I would love to be their No 1.

"I met the new manager after the last international break for an introduction and to see what he did in training, get a feeling for his way of working. It was brilliant to get my face in there. I was there for two days, two sessions, then back up at Aberdeen for that weekend.

"The manager seems to have been a breath of fresh air. When I went down, you sensed he had brought a new lease of life, you can also see that with how the lads have been playing."
