Milan Baros has revealed that he will quit Liverpool in the summer unless he wins a regular starting place at Anfield.

Baros was left on the bench for Sunday’s Carling League Cup Final defeat to Chelsea, as coach Rafa Benitez opted to play Fernando Morientes as a lone striker. The demotion to the bench has convinced the Czech striker that his future lies elsewhere.

“I think my time at the club is ticking down,” he told The Sun.

“I’ve nothing against Liverpool. I love the fans and am proud of being able to play here.

“All I want is to play regularly. If it’s not going to be here, then I hope that I will get a good offer from elsewhere.

“I stayed at Liverpool in the hope I would be playing more,” added the 23-year-old.

“After Owen left for Real and Cisse got injured, it looked like I could begin making regular appearances in the starting line-up.

“But it seems they just don’t regard me as a regular starter.

“I need to play regularly, though, and not just waste my time on the bench.”
