Voronin in mood to fight for Liverpool future

Ukrainian striker Andriy Voronin wants another chance to prove he has a future at Liverpool.

The 29-year-old is back in boss Rafael Benitez's squad after a year-long loan at Hertha Berlin and figured in Wednesday night's opening pre-season friendly against St Gallen.

Voronin played in the first half of a 0-0 draw and is clearly intent on reviving his career at Liverpool.

Benitez said: “He did really well in Germany last season, scoring plenty of goals, and he has told me that he wants to stay at the club and fight for his position. I have told him that will be difficult with Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard as our first-choice strikers. But he will fight for his place.”
