Maxi loving life at Liverpool
Liverpool - Maxi Rodriguez enjoying his time at Anfield
Maxi Rodriguez has dismissed talk that he's unhappy at Liverpool and is looking forward to building his future at the club.
The Argentine international playmaker has recently come to the fore at Anfield under Kenny Dalglish, scoring four goals in two games for the reds including a hat-trick against Birmingham in the 5-0 win.
After moving to Merseyside in January 2010, opportunities had been limited for the 30-year-old. However, his recent resurgence has coincided with an up-turn in fortunes for the club as a whole and now Maxi is keen to build on that success.
"I am really happy here. The people have treated us really well. The type of life we have here, the way of life, is very different to what we were used to after nine years in Spain but I am enjoying everything," said Maxi.
"How can you not enjoy it? I am at a great club and it is great to play here."
With the club now fifth in the Barclays Premier League, Europa League football is a realistic possibility for Liverpool and Maxi confirmed that the team are pulling towards securing qualification for Europe.
However, the long-term target for the former Atletico Madrid man is Champions League football, something he is confident can be achieved within his current two-year contract.
"Obviously it is everyone's dream to play in the Champions League. Not just for the players, but for the club. That is where Liverpool want to be and deserve to be," he continued.
"But at the moment that is maybe not realistic so getting in the Europa League is our target. If we have to play in the Europa League, we will play in it and try to win it."
