Dossena: Aquilani will be great for Liverpool captain Gerrard

Andrea Dossena is backing fellow Italian Alberto Aquilani to be the perfect foil for Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard.

Dossena can't wait to see his countryman in regular action alongside arguably the best midfielder in world football.

"Potentially, Aquilani is a great player," said the left-back to liverpoolfc.tv.

"He is a complete midfielder who can do everything at both ends of the pitch. He can run, defend, make a hard tackle or score with his terrific shot from long distance.

"He and Gerrard together can give us the strongest midfield in the league, and one of the strongest at European level. Over the past two seasons he has played little football because of his injuries, but when he is fully fit he will prove his value.

"Give him just a little time to settle in England, on and off the pitch, and he will be a sensational player."
