New Liverpool signing Aly Cissokho believes the club should be in the Champions League and intends to play in the competition soon.

Brendan Rodgers secured the season-long loan signing of the Frenchman earlier this week from Valencia to provide further competition in the left-back position.

Rodgers has been tasked with the job of getting the Anfield club back in the Champions League for the first time since 2010 and Cissokho believes it is about time Liverpool were playing there again.

"The Champions League is a competition that you dream of taking part in and I think that a club like Liverpool richly deserves to be involved in it because of the quality of its players and the atmosphere and quality of its stadium,” he told the official Liverpool website.

“Champions League nights at Liverpool are the kind of games that are really special for the players in any away team coming to Anfield, and that's why Liverpool very much deserve to be a part of that competition.”

The 25-year-old has good experience of European club football’s premier competition playing for Porto, Lyon and Valencia, even winning at Anfield while representing the Ligue 1 side.

As well as Champions League experience, Cissokho will provide Jose Enrique with stern competition for his first team spot and essential cover in a position that looked a bit bare.

Cissokho is the latest in a number of signing made by Rodgers this summer, joining Iago Aspas, Luis Alberto, Kolo Toure and Simon Mignolet.
