Harry Kewell is determined to work his way back into the Liverpool side.
After four injury ravaged seasons Harry Kewell is determined to work his way back into the Liverpool side.
The now fit left-midfielder spoke of how he is out to earn himself a new contract at Anfield.
Kewell said in the Daily Star: "I'll be giving it my all, fighting for a new deal."
The Australian was keen to highlight his appreciation for the support Rafa Benitez had given him during four hugely disjointed seasons.
Kewell said: "I really owe the manager, Rafa Benitez. He's been a massive fan of mine and I want to repay the faith he's shown in me."
Kewell's injuries have resulted in him only managing 123 appearances since joining The Reds in 2003.
The winger added: "It's been a difficult time for me with all the injuries. The fans have been frustrated with me and I've been just as frustrated with myself.
"I am feeling good now, totally recovered and I'm planning a big season.
"I'd like to be with a great club like Liverpool as long as I can. If I get my wish great, but you can't put all your eggs in one basket."
