Current Sporting CP central midfield talent, Alberto Aquilani says the departure of former Liverpool tactician; Rafael Benitez made life at the club tougher for him.
The Italy International played at Italian club side AS Roma in the 2002/2003 season before moving on loan to Triestina for a short while but returned to the club. He made a switch to The Reds for 15 million Pounds in the 2009/2010 season as he was hitting decent form. He played for Liverpool for a season before being shipped off on loan to Juventus in the next season. He returned to Anfield after his loan spell before being sent on another spell with AC Milan. He returned after his Milan spell but was eventually sold off to Fiorentina in the 2012 season. He has played there until his move to Sporting CP this season.
