Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward says that he is looking to become number one goalkeeper at the club.
The twenty-two year old is currently spending the season on loan at Scottish side Aberdeen – and is earning rave reviews for his performances there.
But he wants to come back to Anfield and go on to be the number one stopper at the club.
“Scotland has been very enjoyable. Getting regular games has been massive,” he told the Daily Mail.
“I might not be called on for 80 minutes and then have an important save to make. It is similar to being a big club in England, like Liverpool. It can be only good for the future.
“It is definitely an ambition of mine to be Liverpool’s first-choice. I have a self-belief where I think I can play at the highest level. Ideally that’s at Liverpool, that would be fantastic.
“They gave me a new long-term contract before I came up. I took it to mean they think I have got a chance. Long term, I would love to be their number one.
“I met the new manager after the last international break for an introduction and to see what he did in training, get a feeling for his way of working. It was brilliant to get my face in there. I was there for two days, two sessions, then back up at Aberdeen for that weekend.
“The manager seems to have been a breath of fresh air. When I went down, you sensed he had brought a new lease of life, you can also see that with how the lads have been playing.” he finished.
