Aquilani still two weeks away from fitness

7 Oct

Liverpool’s new signing Alberto Aquilani is still at least two weeks away from fitness according to Rafa Benitez. Apparently Aquilani has been doing very well in his rehab workouts, but has yet to kick a ball, a rather vital act in the life of a footballer me thinks.

At this rate, Aquilani won’t make an appearance for Liverpool until November.  When Liverpool originally signed him, the thought was that he would be out an additional 4-8 weeks.  We’re approaching the back end of that number and with the Reds struggling, hopefully Aquilani will be able to assert himself in the lineup decently soon.  I realize it will take a while for him to be able to play a full 90 minutes, but we’ve got to have someone more reliable in the midfield if we’re even going to compete for a top four spot.  I’m not even sure Aquilani is the answer, but it’s worth a shot.
