Iago Aspas wants more minutes to add to hat-trick and Europa League strike

Iago Aspas is hoping for more minutes as he continues his loan spell away from Liverpool this season.

Liverpool forward Iago Aspas has been speaking about his first few months on loan at Spanish side Sevilla.

The 27-year-old signed for the Reds in the summer of 2013 but he would go on to score just one goal in 15 appearances.

He has now returned to his homeland, and in an interview with Inside Spanish Football the former Celta Vigo forward revealed what he needs to succeed this season.

“All I’m missing is continuity in the team and to get several run-outs of 90 minutes under my belt,” Aspas said.

“I’m gaining confidence and feeling better with each passing day.”

Aspas has been used sparingly in La Liga this season, making six substitute appearances to record a total of just 67 minutes on the pitch.

However, he scored a hat-trick in the Copa del Rey and also netted in a 2-2 draw in the Europa League to prove he has not lost his eye for goal.

It remains to be seen if Brendan Rodgers sees a future for Aspas at Liverpool but it appears unlikely given his previous form for the club and the fact that he is not currently setting La Liga on fire since his return.

But all he can do is play when he is given the chance and hope the goals begin to flow more regularly as a result.

After all, he has shown what he can do when he is given a chance from the start.
