Ryan Babel happy to stay at Liverpool

Babel started Liverpool's first game of the season against Spurs but has since lost his place to Yossi Benayoun.

He was also surprisingly left out of the Holland squad for their latest World Cup qualifiers, and was linked with a loan move to Ajax.

"I did an interview in Holland and I don't know who in England got hold of it but it was the worst translation I have ever seen.

"The fact is I'm very happy here and I don't want to leave to go anywhere. I just want to concentrate on playing.

"Yes, there is a lot of competition for places at Liverpool but that's the same at every top club. It was like that when I was at Ajax and that isn't a problem for me.

"I heard about what was being reported when I was away with Holland. When I got back to Liverpool I went straight to the manager and told him it wasn't true. He accepted that and there is no problem."
