Liverpool striker Aspas disappointed at lack of goals
Thursday 19 September 2013
Liverpool striker Iago Aspas, one of Brendan Rodgers’ seven summer signings, has said that he is not entirely happy with his form so far for the club, mainly due to his lack of goals, reports the Daily Mirror.
Aspas started the Reds’ opening three Premier League matches before the international break, but was dropped for Monday’s visit to Swansea City in favour of Victor Moses, who arrived on a season-long loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day.
Although he came on as a substitute during the second half at the Liberty Stadium, Aspas failed to break his Liverpool duck, and the Spaniard admits that he is disappointed not to have got off the mark, although the Reds sit top of the Premier League.
He said: "I suppose on a personal level, I'm not as entirely happy as I would want to be because I still feel that I can do a lot better. But I'm working hard every day to try and improve and be able show that on the pitch to my teammates. It's not that easy coming here from the Spanish league and I've only had a short period to settle in.’
"But me being on target isn't so important as long as the team is winning and stays at the top of the table. I think when I do score, it will be a really explosive reaction as over the last four or five seasons I probably haven't gone as many games as this without a goal."
Aspas joined Liverpool after impressing last season for Celta Vigo, who narrowly avoided relegation from La Liga. The 26-year-old scored 12 goals in 34 games as Celta stayed up on the final day of the campaign.
