Liverpool Flop Claims That Lack of First Team Action Almost Killed Him

Spaniard not happy with limited role in debut season at Anfield.

Liverpool flop Iago Aspas is seemingly not happy with the limited role he played during his debut season at the Anfield outfit.

The Daily Express paints a picture of a player who appears to blame Liverpool, and not himself, for a failure to make an impact on Merseyside.

The 27 year old has been sent to La Liga side Sevilla on a season long loan and is happy to playing regular football after a tough first year in England.

“I’m happy to have made my debut, because I knew, when we came out, that not everything was alright, but we worked very hard.

“Last year, it was hard for me to get minutes and this year I was patiently waiting to get my first minutes.

“I like playing football, I live for and with football and if I don’t play I almost die.”

Aspas would do well to ask himself why Brendan Rodgers opted to not give the former Celta Vigo forward more time to prove himself and less time questioning the decision the Northern Irish boss took in that regard.

After all Liverpool had no issues finding the back of the net without calling upon Aspas, with Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez both proving hugely effective in 2013/14.

Also, it’s not as if Aspas wasn’t given the opportunity to show what he is capable of, with the £7m signing making 15 appearances in all competitions and scoring just one solitary goal in the process and that coming in an FA Cup clash with Oldham.
