Dani Pacheco is eager to prove his worth to new Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish - and has gone some way to doing so already.

The Spaniard impressed the onlooking Scot for when he scored for the reserves on Tuesday and now has his sights set on a place in the first team.

"For me Kenny Dalglish is the main man here, he is someone we all look up to and everyone respects him a lot," Pacheco told the official Liverpool website.

"I can keep working hard every day at [Liverpool training ground] Melwood in training and when the chance comes I have to take it.

"I hope I can challenge for a place and it's a new challenge for all of us, especially the young players because Kenny knows every player in the Academy."

Pacheco moved to Anfield from Barcelona in 2007 and has been tipped to follow in the footsteps of compatriot and Liverpool hero Fernando Torres.

Although - like Torres - the Spain under 19 international traditionally favours a striking role, former Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson has requested that the youngster was played in wide positions for the reserves with a view to him playing on the wing for the first XI.

However, Pacheco has since been moved back into his natural position for the Liverpool reserves and is relishing his new found freedom.

"All I want to do now is keep working hard and hopefully I will get more chances in that position," he added.

"I was happy with my goal and it was nice to help the team stay at the top of the league.

"It has been a long time since we had a game so all the boys were desperate to play again and we got the result we wanted."
