Luis Alberto spoke to Rivista Undici about his career so far and he made an interesting comment on his time in Liverpool.

What is the story?

Well, it was Brendan Rodgers who signed the Spaniard in 2013, spending £ 6.8million to bring Alberto to Anfield.

However, Rodgers never really used the playmaker much, which made the decision to sign him odd.

In total, Alberto only made 12 appearances for Liverpool, before being sold to Lazio for a loss of £ 4.3million.

Now the Spaniard has admitted his stint on Merseyside was a waste of time.

Quoted by OKcalciomercato, Alberto said: “Of course, it’s true: it would certainly have turned out differently if they had called me at another time, but there are those who waste 15 years of their career; after all, I only lost a few years.

This was not said maliciously, it seems. The 29-year-old is just aware that he has stagnated at Liverpool, when he could have developed elsewhere.

Oddly enough, Alberto actually did great things at Lazio after leaving Liverpool, which suggests Rodgers made a mistake.

In 184 appearances for the Serie A team, the former Malaga player secured his first cap for Spain, in addition to scoring 36 goals.

Alberto also provided 51 assists becoming one of Italy’s best midfielders.

It looked like Liverpool were perhaps a bit too hasty to offload the Spaniard, who had never had any luck at Anfield.

Nonetheless, the Reds have always been successful without Alberto, just as he has also found happiness away from Anfield.

It may have been a waste of time, but at least he and the Reds found success after going their separate ways.
