Bogdan pushing for number one spot at Liverpool

Adam Bogdan is prepared to do everything in his power to fight for the number one shirt at Liverpool.

The Hungarian goalkeeper has made two appearances in the Capital One Cup since joining from Bolton in the summer and is planning to use Wednesday night's quarter-final clash with Southampton as a springboard to force his way into Jurgen Klopp's first team plans.

Bogdan has watched on as Simon Mignolet has started every Premier League and Europa League fixture but the 28-year-old is determined for that to change.

"Everyone would like to play. I am the same and would like to play week in, week out – but what I can do is to train well and by doing so, get an opportunity and then try to take it by playing well, and then let the manager decide. I have to keep training hard and trying to improve," he told the club's official website.

"I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe I could do that and that's why I am putting a lot of effort into training, in the gym and everywhere.

"The main thing is when you have an opportunity, you have to take it – you need to be concentrated and need to play well. Most of the players are in the same shoes as everyone wants to play and represent Liverpool – and I am the same."

He added: "For me so far this season, the Capital One Cup has been my only opportunity to play for Liverpool so for that reason, for me it's vital to progress into the next round to get another chance if the manager decides to give me another game.

"The last two games were really good – a great experience and fantastic memories – so I hope it continues."
