Liverpool midfielder Christian Poulsen has stated that he wants to stay at Anfield and be a part of Kenny Dalglish’s plans in rebuilding the club’s process next season.
The Danish international’s chances of departing Liverpool during the transfer window were very high as he is reported to be one of several players heading towards the exit, having only featured a handful of times under new boss Kenny Dalglish.
Poulsen agreed to sign for The Reds from Juventus at the start of last season under former boss Roy Hodgson for only £5 million, but has since become a benchwarmer for the club during his spell at Anfield and has also been accused of not being up to the pace of the Barclays Premier League.
Despite the toughness in adapting to English football, the Dane has vowed to be persistent and try to fight for a place in the starting lineup”
It was a really long season. I came here in August and a lot of things happened during the season – we have got new owners and the manager has changed.
The whole time the dressing room was really good during a season of a lot of changes. The atmosphere is always better when you’re winning games, but that is normal in football.
In the second half of the season we found ourselves as a team and I am looking forward to seeing how Liverpool play next season because I think a lot of things have gone on this year, so if we can have more of a stable season then it will be interesting to see which position we can finish in.
I am sure Kenny is the right man to lead Liverpool to success in the future because in the short time he has been here, we have only gone one way – and I hope that will continue in the future.
Of course, I would also like to play a little bit more – and that is my hope for the future. To come to Liverpool and to play at Anfield has been really good for me, but I hope I still have bigger moments to come in the future that I will be able to talk about at the end of next season.
I hope I can get closer to the starting XI. I have been training hard at Melwood to try and get back into the team and that is my aim for the future.
