Babel nails his colours to the Liverpool mast

Ryan Babel is determined to establish himself at Liverpool and seal a place in the Holland side. Babel has struggled to hold down a regular place in Rafa Benitez's plans and has made just two starts in the Premier League this term.

The 22-year-old knows he needs more action if he is to seal a place in Bert van Marwijk's Holland squad for next summer's World Cup finals, and he wants to get it at Anfield rather than at another club.

"He [van Marwijk] wants players to be playing at their club to get a chance to go to the World Cup so that's also for me what I try to reach and work every day very hard," Babel told Sky Sports News.

"Liverpool are a very good team everybody knows that and I am proud to be part of Liverpool."
