Lambert confident of Liverpool success

Rickie Lambert is confident that he can prove his worth at Anfield following his recent transfer, reports Sky Sports.

Merseysider Lambert recently joined Liverpool from Southampton for an initial £4 million after spending five years on the south coast, scoring 106 league goals in 207 matches.

At 32 years old, Lambert is considered to have arrived very late at the highest level of the English game, but is determined to prove any doubters wrong.

Lambert was a youth player at Anfield, having grown up supporting the Reds, but was released at the age of 15, a blow that he describes as devastating. However, he recovered to carve out a solid Football League career, first with Blackpool, before spells with Macclesfield Town, Stockport County, Rochdale and Bristol Rovers. His big break came with a move to Southampton, then in League One, and he stayed with the Saints as they progressed to the Premier League.

Lambert continued his goalscoring exploits, and earned an England call-up, scoring on his debut against Scotland and cementing a place in the squad. He is currently with the team in Brazil for the World Cup.

The dream move to his beloved Liverpool came as a surprise, though. "It wasn't a chance I was expecting to get but I've been given it now and I want to get out there that I believe I am good enough and that I will perform and that I will help Liverpool," said Lambert.

"And as much as it's a whirlwind that is happening for me at the minute with the way my career has gone, I want to make it clear that I feel I deserve to be here and what I've done deserves me to be here right now."
