Liverpool attacker Iago Aspas says that he is content with his decision to join the Merseyside giants.
The Spaniard completed £7.7m move to Anfield from Celta Vigo over the summer, following an impressive 2012/13 campaign in La Liga.
Although he has started all here of the Reds’ wins in the Premier League, Aspas is yet to find the net, leading some to question his adaptation to English football.
But, the 26-year-old says that he is happy with his decision, and is enjoying life with Liverpool:
“I would tell any player to go to the Premier League, you get a different feeling, especially compared to Spain.” He is quoted by Sky Sports.
“It’s the first time I’ve left home so that’s been hard, but things are going well. I’m very happy, especially because we are leading the league. It’s only been three games though, and it’s a very long competition.
“I’m playing a bit further back than I did at Celta, but over there you need to run a bit more because it’s a bit more physically. That’s the biggest difference from the Spanish league, which is more based on technique.
“So far, I’ve only played three games there and I haven’t visited all the stadiums, so it’d be difficult for me to say which of the two is the better league. At the end of the season, I can answer that question.”
Aspas was one of a number of summer arrivals at Liverpool, as Brendan Rodgers set about building a squad capable of challenging for a top four position.
He has so far been used in supporting role to Daniel Sturridge, but his starting role may be under threat with the arrival of Victor Moses and the imminent re-introduction of Luis Suarez.
The Nigerian international arrived at Anfield on a season-long loan deal on deadline day, and is expected to occupy a starting role, while the Uruguayan is set to return for a 10-match suspension, which may force Aspas out of the starting XI.
