In his column for the Liverpool Echo, Aldo opined: "Meireles left just before the deadline and I wasn't surprised. I always thought one midfielder would move on and he was the most likely.
"Meireles, like Joe Cole, Dani Pacheco and Alberto Aquilani, can't really play in the 4-4-2 structure that Kenny likes.
"He was used out wide but everyone can see he's no winger. Meireles needs a role in a three-man central midfield - that's the way Chelsea play.
"He went with his head held high because he did a decent job. I think £12million was fair so it was a good deal for everyone.
"After all Chelsea have played a massive role in turning Liverpool around. The £50million they gave us for FT enabled us to buy Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll and the £5.5million for Yossi Benayoun also helped rebuild our squad. Maybe letting them have Meireles is a little thank you for everything they have done!"
