Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez accepts it's now time to produce.
Rodríguez admits his adaptation period is over. The ability that brought 41 caps for his country and the captaincy at Atlético, he says, was not misplaced during transit in January.
"After eight years in Spain where the style of play is not nearly as physical as it is in England I did need some time to adapt to playing here," he said.
"Football is football all over the world, you always play with the ball but it does take some time to get used to new styles. Now, though, I feel I understand English football very well. I feel as though I know my team-mates a lot better and they know me, and that is helping me play a lot better."
