Iago Aspas, the Liverpool forward who joined La Liga side Sevilla on a season-long loan deal this week, has criticised the club for the lack of first team opportunities afforded to him at Anfield.
Despite praising his experienced in the Premier League as a whole, Aspas was keen to point out that he felt that he hadn’t been given ample opportunity to impress by manager Brendan Rodgers, despite the stunning form of the likes of Luis Suarez.
Aspas is also happy to be returning to La Liga, with the former Celta Vigo man excited by the prospect of increased playing time with Unai Emery’s reigning Europa League champions.
The 26 year-old made just 14 Premier League appearances for the Reds after joining from Celta, failing to score a goal, with his only strike for the club being against League One strugglers Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup.
He did have a one-in-three goalscoring record for Celta Vigo in Spanish football, however, so Sevilla will be confident of having landed a fine addition to a side looking to come to terms with the loss of talisman Ivan Rakitic to Barcelona.
The deal could also open up the possibility for Liverpool to go back in for Sevilla left back Alberto Moreno, whose proposed deal to Anfield collapsed earlier in the summer due to wrangling over the fee.
