Aspas bags debut goal for Liverpool

Liverpool’s new Spanish striker Iago Aspas marked his debut with a goal in Saturday’s 4-0 friendly win over Preston at Deepdale.

Aspas signed from Celta Vigo for £7.7 million during the close-season and he gave a glimpse of why Reds manager Brendan Rodgers was so keen to land him with a fine second-half strike against the League One side.

The 25-year-old curled home Liverpool’s final goal as they eased their way back into action in their opening warm-up, a fixture organised in honour of Reds’ legendary manager and former Lilywhites player Bill Shankly.

“Iago works hard, he’s got a trick in and around the box and he excites supporters,” said Rodgers.

“He’s a good guy and he works very hard for the supporters.

“He drifts well in between the lines and always wants to receive the ball, but what I like is that he wants to score goals.

“He’s looking to create and combine or go solo by himself and get a shot in. His goal was a terrific strike.”
