Liverpool got their pre-season underway yesterday (Wednesday) in China against Guangdong. Kenny Dalglsih gave all the players a run out as he changed the entire team at half-time.
Alberto Aquilani came on in the second half and put in a decent performance in the middle of the park, linking up well with Charlie Adam. There is a lot of talk with regards to Aquilani’s future after he failed to clinch a permanent deal to Juventus after his loan spell.
Some fans are calling for Aquilani to be sold whilst some would like to see him given another chance in the Premier League under the Kenny Dalglish pass and move style of play which would bring out the best in the Italian. Questions would still need to be answered: is Aquilani physical enough for the English game, how would he cope without getting as much time on the ball as he had in Italy and subsequently against a side like Guangdong, and is he past his injury problems?
Thanks to ElPistoleroJFT96 for putting together a video for us showing Aquilani’s display against Guangdong.
