Former Liverpool player Alberto Aquilani has questioned the club's transfer business and insists that they have not done enough to prove that they are ready to compete with their rivals. The Reds were only able to sign one player during the entire summer transfer window and let go of up to three players who were registered under them as first-team stars, meaning that they lost more players than they signed and it's not something that Aquilani sees as good business. Liverpool completed the signing of French defender Ibrahima Konate from German Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig this summer and it was their only addition to the squad.
When Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk got injured at the beginning of last season, a lot of people immediately started thinking that maybe his career would be greatly affected because of the severity of the problem. While they saw that there were very huge chances of him returning to full fitness, they still held a notion that maybe the injury was a career-threatening one and an example is the one suffered by Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw some years ago. Although the United star's injury was quite a horrible one, he has recovered so well from it and has now taken his football to a whole new level of brilliance.
It is a tough task to point out the best defender ever in the entire history of football, especially when there have been the likes of Zanetti, Bonucci, Marco Van Basten, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Fabio Cannavaro, and a lot of others who have graced the game in the last years. However, it is also safe to mention that Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has steadily and consistently built a credible reputation for himself as not just one of the best players in his era, but also one of the best defenders to have ever played the game as well.
Former Liverpool star Alberto Aquilani has backed his former side to make a strong push for the English Premier League title next season. The former attacker says that he knows the Reds struggled a lot last season particularly in the league but Insists that they have a huge chance to bounce back from their poor campaign and challenge for the league crown next season.
According to former Liverpool player Alberto Aquilani, the club must do everything it takes to ensure that they keep hold of star forward Mohamed Salah. There have been a lot of reports and rumors linking the Egyptian forward to an exit from Anfield this summer, and it has attracted a lot of reaction from the Reds' fans who have all unanimously called on the club to make sure they tie the winger to a new contract.
Salah and Liverpool are both at the risk of missing out on Champions League football for next season as they continue to struggle to break into the top four in the English Premier League table so far. The club that have been linked to the signing of the former AS Roma star are Barcelona, with the Spanish La Liga giants interested in adding him to their attack ahead of next season.
Italian midfielder Alberto Aquilani was destined for a phenomenal career until several injury issues prevented him from reaching the pinnacle of his career. While his club career suffered a great deal because of the injuries, his national team career was also not spared.
The injuries suffered by Alberto Aquilanipartly contributed to his return of just 38 caps for the Italian national team over a period of eight years. The ex-AS Roma and Liverpool midfielder played for Italy from 2006 to 2014, netting five goals in the process.
Hewas one of the players who featured for at leastsix majoryouth teams over the last two decades. He played for the u-16, u-17, u-18, u-19, u-20 and u-21 teams before making his debut for the senior team.
Former Liverpool player Alberto Aquilani has insisted that one of the many reasons for the Reds' poor form this season has been due to the fact that they miss the presence of captain and key player Virgil van Dijk. The Netherlands international defender has not played for the club since picking up a knee injury earlier in the season against Liverpool after getting involved in a collision with goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
Ex-Italian international midfielder Alberto Aquilani believes that he's a forgotten man amongst the Liverpool faithfuls and that it could have been different if not for Uruguayan football legend Diego Forlan, a former striker at Manchester United.
Alberto Aquilani talked about his time at Liverpool in an exclusive interview with The Guardian. According to him, his Liverpool career would have changed for the better if not for the goal from Diego Forlan.Alberto Aquilani joined Liverpool from Italian Serie A giants AS Roma in a £17.1m deal in the summer of 2009. Alberto Aquilani was signed as a replacement for Xabi Alonso, who had left for Spanish giants Real Madrid. Spanish international Xabi Alonso joined Real Madrid from Liverpool in the summer of 2009 and then Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez placed his faith in a certain Alberto Aquilani in his quest to replace the quality of a player like Alberto Aquilani.
Many Liverpool fans won't remember Roberto Aquilani played for the club given how much of no impact he made at the club when he joined under Rafael Benitez. The midfielder joined the Anfield Club with high expectations both from fans back then and the manager who recruited him but things did not go quite as planned and it was a rather unfortunate scenario for both the club and the player.
He was signed for a then-hefty fee of £18 million but failed to justify why such an amount was paid to acquire his services. Let's take a look at the five reasons why he failed in England.
When Liverpool were confirmed to have been interested in signing Roberto Aquilani from Italy eleven years ago, the Reds fans were in a jubilant mood and thought they were getting a top, top player on their hands.
The former player was also in very high spirits when he heard Liverpool were interested in him, as he confirmed in an interview back then that he would be glad to play for the Anfield club.
