Liverpool fullback Aurelio: My family enjoyed Blackpool seaside

Liverpool fullback Fabio Aurelio admits he's taken his family to the Blackpool seaside.

Liverpool travel to face Blackpool at Bloomfield Road today, but it won't be a culture shock even for a man used to the more exotic surroundings of his homeland.

Aurelio said: "I have been Blackpool before and while it is hard for me to talk about the beach because I would only compare it with the beaches back home in Brazil, I can say that my family all had a good time there.

"This is my fifth season in England so I'm used to playing at different grounds and also being away from my family at Christmas.

"Of course, it should be a time when you spend time with the people you love but playing on Boxing Day is a tradition in England and I also respect that.

"I am just pleased to be playing again. I have been training hard and it was nice to get 90 minutes against Steaua Bucharest.

"I feel fully fit again and I am just waiting for the opportunity to play because I feel I can offer more to Liverpool.

"We all have to be ready because this is a period with a lot of important games and the squad will come into use."
