Reds boss Gerard Houllier insisted that all members of the squad must be determined to fight for the club and that he will not keep any unhappy players at the club.
Baros has struggled to establish on Merseyside since his move from Banik Ostrava last December, but he is determined to work his way into Houllier's first team plans.
The Czech international impressed during pre-season and he is hoping to carry that form into the new season.
"It was a little bit frustrating when I first arrived at the club, it wasn't an easy time, because I had to learn a new language and adapt to new surroundings," said Baros.
"But I certainly do not regret the move, and I am ready to work as hard as possible to win a place. Liverpool have so many quality players, especially in attack, but I'm confident I can be a success here.
"I worked as hard as possible this summer, because I knew competition for places would be tough. I was relieved when I heard the club decided not to buy Nicolas Anelka, but then they went and bought El Hadji Diouf, another fantastic player".
"That's what it's like when you play for a club like Liverpool."
Meanwhile, Liverpool assistant boss Phil Thompson and chief European scout Alex Miller were interested onlookers at Hampden Park on Wednesday as Scotland fell to defeat against Denmark.
The pair are believed to have been looking at Danish wing aces Dennis Rommedahl and Peter Lovenkrands.
The Reds are determined to bolster their wide options having seemingly lost out on first choice Damien Duff.
Aston Villa failed in a bid to sign PSV Eindhoven ace Rommedahl earlier in the summer, while Rangers star Lovenkrands has attracted the interest of a host of clubs with his future at Ibrox still uncertain.
