On loan at Stoke, Liverpool’s Oussama Assaidi says Brendan Rodgers never gave him a chance [Video]
With just 4 league appearances to his name, Oussama Assaidi’s Liverpool career is stillborn.
The Moroccan international was sent out on loan to Stoke this season, where he’s having a good time of it – playing regular football and even bagging himself a few goals.
Speaking from a primary school classroom, Assaidi gave an interview lamenting that Brendan Rodgers never gave him a real chance, though he did contextualize, saying that Rodgers doesn’t really play with wingers, proffering more central midfield types on the sides.
Assaidi added that he’s enjoyed his time at Stoke, but that he honestly doesn’t know yet whether he’ll be returning to Liverpool or continuing his loan spell beyond this season.
