Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto: I was lucky to waste only 2 years at Liverpool

Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto admits his time with Liverpool was a "waste".

The Spanish midfielder arrived at the club from Sevilla ahead of the 2013/14 season, but managed only a handful appearances before being sold to Lazio two seasons later.

He recalled, “When such a team calls you, you can't say no.

“In a short time, I had gone from the Spanish second division to a team that could win the Premier League, with players like Gerrard, Suarez or Sturridge.

“I had moved on to a completely different football; I realised that beyond the technical quality, I had to raise the level of many other things," he told Rivista Undici.

“Of course, it's true: it would certainly have gone differently if they [Liverpool] had called me at another time, but there are those who throw away fifteen years of their career. After all, I have only wasted a couple of years."
