Ukrainian striker Andriy Voronin says he will make a return to Liverpool and 'conquer' the Barclays Premier League after his season-long loan to Hertha Berlin.
Voronin joined Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen on a free transfer in February 2007 but struggled to make an impact at Anfield - scoring just five goals in 19 matches.
However the 29-year-old netted 11 times in 20 appearances Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga and is determined to be a hit in England.
'It wasn't a bad season in Germany but now I am coming back to conquer England,' he told a newspaper in Kiev.
'I'm a person who likes to face new challenges. It's time to proveto myself and to those people who think I can score a lot of goals onlyin Bundesliga, that it's not so.
'Liverpool is one of the world's strongest clubs. To play for it is a great honour for any footballer.
'I know it's not going to be easy but I feel ready for a real fight to get into the first choice team.'
The Ukranian international still has two years to run on his contract with Liverpool and is joining the team on July 5.
