Do us a favour! Lyon midfielder Pjanic aims to give Liverpool a helping hand

23 November 2009 11:05
Lyon playmaker Miralem Pjanic promised Liverpool they will not be taking it easy against Fiorentina in Italy tomorrow.

To keep their Champions League hopes alive Liverpool must beat Debrecen and hope Fiorentina fail to beat Lyon who are already assured of progressing to the knockout stage for the seventh consecutive season.

Fiorentina can secure their place in the last 16 with victory against Lyon but Pjanic dismissed any talk of not giving 100 per cent in Florence.

Promise: Miralem Pjanic insists Lyon won't be taking their foot off the gas against Fiorentina

The Bosnia-Herzegovina international said: 'So far we've played some great games and we have to keep this up.

'We have a good team and we know we can have a successful season in the Champions League.

'We're not one of the favourites and that's better for us but we have a team of huge potential. We've shown some good things and teams will be very wary when they play us.

'Our objective is to go further than just the last 16 where we normally run into a bit of a wall, we want to go as far as possible.

'There was a huge sense of joy after the 2-1 victory an Anfield, we were all so happy.

'We were strong and focused right to the end against a great team.

'This is how we want to be against Fiorentina.'
