Sami Hyypia has spoken of his delight at being included in the Reds squad for the knockout phase of the Champions League.

The giant Finn has been included at the expense of injury-plagued right-back Philipp Degen – who is injured yet again.

“It’s fantastic to be back in the Champions League squad.” said the 35 year old.

“The official squad list was sent to UEFA last Sunday and as normal the manager was considering the list until the last minute.”

“On Sunday he told me that I was in the squad. It’s fantastic and I believe Liverpool can do well in the Champions League.”

Speaking on his Finnish blog, the defender admitted he’d considered ending his spell at Anfield.

“There were a lot of rumours and a few offers as well,” he explained. “Sunderland and Newcastle were mentioned in the press and were both really interested in signing me. Many other teams were interested too.”

“Liverpool made it clear that they were not willing to sell me. That was it, although I might have considered another option.”

“The club decide these things and of course a player can say he would like the club to listen to the offers if the player is unhappy, but if the club doesn’t want to sell there is not much a player can do. Liverpool didn’t want to sell me even though I might have considered another option.” he concluded.
