In welcoming Alberto Aquilani & Farewell to Xabi Alonso

Aquilani was a teammate to one Mr John Arne Risse...

  1. Almost simultaneously, Liverpool did the transaction in Madrid to sale Xabi Alonso and in Italy, concluding the deal to take in Alberto Aquilani.

  2. According to the news report, it was highlighted about Aquilani's series of medical woes a la Michael Owen. hahaha... must we mention that scum?

  3. The good side, many English football writers acknowledge Aquilani's style of play as similar to Steven Gerrard. Meaning he is not an exchange like-for-like with Xabi. Well, it's expected. Not many can play as well as Xabi...

Below are some of the info that I gather for our knowledge on our new guy :

  • He had an ankle surgery in May. So why worry, the problem has been repaired! hmmm...

  • He wore No 8 in Roma. No way he'll get the same no in LFC. You know well who is the current owner.

  • The 25-year-old will otherwise be encouraged to replicate the way he could become a major influence on Roma’s team in a move that should signal an even more attacking approach from Liverpool in the coming season.

  • Aquilani only signed a new four-year deal with Roma worth £70,000 a week in May, following interest from Arsenal a few months earlier, but he has been enticed away by a five-year deal that will increase his weekly wage to £85,000.

  • His eye for goal suggests he will link up with Gerrard just behind Fernando Torres, in a departure from last season’s favoured system of using Alonso and Javier Mascherano as midfield anchor men.

  • He captained his country at Under 19 and Under 21 levels before establishing himself in the senior national side.
