Liverpool striker Aspas determined to improve

Iago Aspas has told of his determination to show Liverpool supporters his true quality when he returns to action, Sky Sports has reported, with the Spaniard currently recovering from a thigh injury.

Signed from Celta Vigo in the summer, Aspas was in prolific form for the Reds in pre-season, but struggled to make an impact in the Premier League and failed to score until being sidelined in mid-October. Since then, his chances of making the starting XI have been hampered by the form of strike pairing Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, as well as Philippe Coutinho’s return from injury.

However, the 26-year-old has vowed to make up for his slow start to the season when he comes back into contention. He told the club’s official site: “Not playing is frustrating, but I can take advantage of this stoppage and try to get back to playing as soon as possible. I think I can improve; I am happy with the team’s level but not so much individually because I think I can do a lot better.

“First I want to recover from my injury and afterwards I can use my qualities better and exploit them better as a centre-forward. I have been injured for four weeks, but I have been training for four or five days on the pitch – running and exercising. I am a lot better. Soon I will be able to kick the ball. In 10 days to two weeks I will be ready to play.”
