It is easy for one to forget about the current Liverpool players out on loan this season when you look at how well our current players have been doing. What is great to note though is that the likes of Robinson, Suso, Borini, Wisdom and Coady who are out on loan have been playing very well and Brendan Rodgers is going to have a tough time deciding on what to do with their futures.
Another player out on loan at Stoke, Oussama Assaidi has also been having a very good season. The Moroccan midfielder has however been out injured of late having started to establish himself in the Stoke side. With the season almost up and his loan spell coming to an end, Assaidi has made it clear that he is still under contract with Liverpool but will not want to sit on the bench if he returns to Anfield next season.
Assaidi said: “I’m unsure what Stoke or Liverpool wants. I am really happy to play for Stoke and I am happy they gave me a chance to play regularly.
“I still have a contract with Liverpool and I hope the boss (Brendan Rodgers) gives me a chance.
“If not, I do not want to sit on the bench because I want to play games, so you never know what can happen in the future.”
25-year old Assaidi would have learnt a lot whilst at Stoke and gotten used to the pace of the English game having joined Liverpool in the summer of 2012. There is no doubt he is a talent and very few players in the league are quicker than him. Assaidi could provide an option for Rodgers next season with his sheer pace as we seem to be playing very well with pacey players in the side. Technically, Assaidi may not be that great but given some time under Rodgers at Melwood, he could be molded into a really great winger.
But with Assaidi now saying that he would not want to sit on the bench, I can not see him being a regular starter for the Reds next season. So if he is adamant that being part of the squad is not what he wants then maybe it is time for Rodgers to cash in on the winger whilst there is still some interest following his impressive displays for Stoke.
