Jack Robinson says that he wants to take his Liverpool chances under Brendan Rodgers following an injury-plagued season.

Liverpool full-back Jack Robinson has insisted that he will try to force his way back into the team following an inconsistent season due to injuries.

The 18-year-old was beginning to claim a frequent spot in the Reds' starting team in the closing stages of the 2010-11 season but was forced to sit on the sidelines after suffering a host of fitness problems.

"It's great to be back playing after what happened last season," Robinson told the Liverpool Echo. "I started off quite well and I was getting on the bench for the first team but then the injury came and that kept me out for four months.

"I had to have an operation on my foot because I had a piece of bone floating around. They took that out and put me in a cast. I got back training and was doing okay but then I hurt my groin which really set me back.

"It was difficult and I hardly got to play at all last season. But now I'm back part of it under the new manager and it's just unbelievable to be part of this squad. Growing up as a kid this is what I wanted and now I'm in it I don't want to leave it."

Robinson made his debut at 16 years of age in 2010.
