Iago Aspas has admitted his frustration at having the start of his Liverpool career hampered by a thigh injury.

The Spaniard, who moved to Anfield in a £6.7m deal from Celta Vigo over the summer, was ruled out of action until December back in October after suffering the problem during a training session.

And the forward, who has not managed to find the net in his first six appearances for Brendan Rodgers’ men, is determined to fight his way back to full fitness as soon as possible.

“Not playing is frustrating, but I can take advantage of this stoppage, and try to get back to playing as soon as possible,” Aspas told Liverpool’s website.

“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.”
