Diving Ngog vows to pick himself up and help steer Liverpool back on track

Liverpool striker David Ngog is confident he will get through the storm surrounding his dive against Birmingham.

The Frenchman made the headlines for all the wrong reasons last Monday night when he clearly cheated to win a penalty as the Reds drew 2-2 with Birmingham at Anfield.

He said: 'You learn more about yourself in the bad times than the good.'

The bad: Ngog went down despite there being no contact from Lee Carsley

Ngog also has faith his team-mates will bounce back from their disappointing run of results which he branded 'unacceptable'. 

Liverpool have lost five Premier League games and are struggling in their Champions League group with their destiny now out of their own hands.

Ngog added in The Sun: 'If you can come through difficulties in life, it will make you stronger in the future. I remember at my old club PSG, we were facing relegation, there were a lot of outside distractions.

The good: The Frenchman had opened the scoring with an unstoppable volley

'It meant I learnt a lot about being a footballer and dealing with pressure. I am not 21 until next April so I have plenty of time to learn more and I couldn't be learning from a better boss than Rafa Benitez or a better striker than Fernando Torres.

'Liverpool demands success so losing games like we have isn't acceptable. Liverpool is the biggest club in the world so we need to remain confident in our own ability.'
