Liverpool fans will now see Aquilani at his best - Benitez

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has no doubt fans will soon see the best from Alberto Aquilani.

The Italian midfielder started his Anfield career on the treatment table, but now the boss admits he is ready to shine.

"It has not been easy for him because people have been comparing him to Alonso after five years, but he has only been here for five months," Benitez told Liverpoolfc.tv.

"Aquilani is doing well and he is improving. I remember Alonso's first year with us. He was injured as well but he finished the season well, so hopefully that will be the same with Alberto.

"He has to improve his fitness but that is a question of time. Alberto is improving and he will be better for us."
