Aurelio targets Reds return

09 September 2009 04:22
Liverpool defender Fabio Aurelio has declared himself fit and ready to make his first appearance of the season against Burnley on Saturday. The Brazilian full-back has been out of action since a summer knee cartilage operation after picking up an injury while playing beach football on holiday. Aurelio is now hoping to impress Reds boss Rafael Benitez during a practice game on Thursday. He explained: "I am feeling good and working hard to try and get back into the squad for Saturday. "The international break came at a good time for me because I have been able to work hard and not miss too many more games. "I'm playing in a practice game on Thursday and I hope to prove my fitness and be involved against Burnley. "I have been training for three weeks now and I can't wait to get back."
