Ex-Newcastle striker Craig Bellamy has signed for Liverpool and says he can't wait to play in the Champions League again.
The 26-year-old signed a four-year deal to complete a move from Blackburn which is believed to have cost the Reds about £6million.
Bellamy: 'Someone just asked me which game I'm most looking forward to, but there are so many big games when you play for Liverpool.
'There's Everton, there's Manchester United, there's club's I've played for in my past - and there'll be Champions League games if the qualifying games go well.
'This club is surrounded with so many great games, week in and week out, and just to pull on the shirt on European nights will be an absolute dream for me.'
It is a competition he knows well. It was his late, late strike against Feyenoord in Rotterdam which took Newcastle into the second stage of the Champions League in 2002-03.
However, he missed six of the Magpies' 14 matches through suspension after head-butting Dynamo Kiev's Tiberiu Ghione and kicking out at Inter Milan's Marco Materazzi.
Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez has no problem with Bellamy's days of ill-discipline, as Martin O'Neill and Mark Hughes had no problems with him whatsoever. As for Graeme Souness ... the less said the better! And Freddy Shepherd, come to think of it. How we could do with Bellamy right now.
