Alberto Aquilani has spoken about the reasons for his exit from Liverpool after having been declared as a flop.
The Italian was signed from Roma by former manager Rafa Benitez for around £ 20 million. It was seen as a bargain at that time since Aquilani was one of the young and upcoming midfielders in Italy with a lot of talent, although he had a reputation for being injured too long. Benitez was hoping that his scientific approach to the game would help alleviate the injury worries for the midfielder but it was not the case. Aquilani was injured for a majority of his Liverpool career.
