Assaidi admits not having personality for Liverpool - unlike Henderson

Oussama Assaidi feels his price-tag may have cost him his future at Liverpool.

The midfielder was signed by the Reds from Heerenveen in 2012 for a knockdown fee. Assaidi admits he should've thrown his weight around when first joining.

He recalled: "You have to come in really big. I also played with Jordan Henderson. They took him for twenty million and he was just a bad buy in the first year. "Because he had cost twenty million, he wanted to show himself. Now he is captain and he plays every week.

"Also with the English team. You just have to come in big. Then you are also taken seriously at a large club."
