Aquilani admits that his exit from Liverpool was rushed

Alberto Aquilani originally joined Liverpool back in 2009 for a transfer fee of €20 million and this signing that was made by the Premier League is generally considered to be as an unsuccessful one, this is mainly due to the fact that Aquilani made less than 30 appearances in Anfield during his 3 season long stay.


The Italian midfielder sustained an ankle injury which made him unable to make consistent performances and was out of action for a significantly long period of time. Aquilani was later on loaned out to Ac.Milan and As.Roma before eventually being offloaded to Fiorentina.

There was a point in time when Alberto Aquilani was regarded as one of the most promising Italian midfielders, as someone who could succeed Andrea Pirlo but Aquilani simply could not live up to those expectations as he did help out Italy and made over 30 appearances in the international stage but his contributions or impact at the international scene were never really hugely influential.

Aquilani is currently performing with the recently Serie A promoted team Pescara but he has recently talked about his stay in Liverpool as he did say that his move away from Liverpool was a little bit hurried and abrupt.

"I had a great time with Liverpool and I had the honor of wearing a special shirt and playing in an incredible stadium. Then I decided to leave, and perhaps I was a bit hasty. Maybe I should have stayed and continued playing in the Premier League, but I wanted to come back to Italy for family reasons. Nobody forced me out." Pescara’s Alberto Aquilani said.

After having earned a promotion spot into the Serie A, Pescara is now fighting in the top tier Italian League and appear to be struggling with only 1 victory secured so far from their 9 opening matches of the season. Aquilani is a veteran player who has performed in some of the biggest leagues from around the world and he wants to use this experience in helping out Pescara in their journey of competing against the best clubs in Italy.
