RYAN BABEL has vowed to knuckle down after a heart-to-heart with boss Rafael Benitez.

The Liverpool forward’s relationship with Benitez reached a critical point last month.

Amid rumours of a move away, a series of outbursts on his Twitter page saw Babel dropped from the squad.

But since being disciplined by the club, the 23-year-old has worked hard to get back into the team and featured in the last two matches, starting in the goalless draw at Manchester City.

Babel said: „I have had a good talk with the manager and I know what I have to do.

„That is what I am going to concentrate on. I just have to try to be patient, keep working hard and doing my best.”

Babel hopes to be able to play a part in tomorrow’s Europa League second-leg tie against Unirea Urziceni in Bucharest.

Although Liverpool are keen to regain fourth spot in the Premier League and secure Champions League football next season, Babel said it would be good for the club to finish the campaign with some silverware.

He added: „At Liverpool we try to win every trophy that it is possible to go for.

„At the moment that’s only the Europa League so we are definitely going to try to win the trophy.

„Unirea may not be a well-known team but the fact they are playing in Europe at this stage shows they are a good team.
