Babel happy at Liverpool

The 22-year-old insists he is not looking to leave the Reds in the January transfer window.

Babel has been linked with a move away from the club after being told by Holland coach Bert van Marwijk that he must be playing more regularly in order to seal a place in the squad for next summer’s World Cup finals.

“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.”
