Dietmar Hamann has spoken out ahead of what could possibly be his final game as a Liverpool player.

"It is still undecided what I am doing next year, but it is going to be a great occasion on Wednesday," said Hamman.

"We have got a chance, just one more game to win, and we will do everything we can to make sure that happens.

"It would be a great way to go out, but that is to be decided after the final.

"There is still a chance I will stay here, but if I do leave this would be the best possible final game for me to play.

"I don't need to rush because I have got time, that is the situation.

"I don't want to be disturbed with any contract talks in the build-up."

Despite the magnitude of the mission ahead, Hamann is confident that Liverpool can respond to the challenge put to them by taking their game onto another level.

"We will certainly have to step up a level," Hamann insisted.

"Milan have been favourites since back in August, alongside Chelsea and Barcelona, and they look solid.

"They might have been a touch lucky against PSV but that showed their class.

"They won it only two years ago so they know they can win this competition which is a big advantage to them.

"But we have beaten some very good teams and we go there with a chance."
