Aquilani all geared up to prove his worth

Alberto Aquilani is confident his performances for Liverpool will prove Rafa Benitez was right to make him his biggest signing of the summer.

The Italian International is yet to make his Reds debut as he continues to recover from an ankle injury, but he believes once he gets back to full fitness he will prove his worth.

"I know Liverpool have spent millions on signing me but I'm here to prove I'm worth it." the 25-year-old said.

The former Roma man is also looking forward to playing in the Premier League, which he has so far enjoyed watching from afar.

"It's very good fun watching it, mostly because the matches are never over, and even if you are leading by two or three goals, you still keep attacking," he said.

"I can't say if it is the best football in Europe, but for sure it's the most spectacular, dynamic and challenging.

"And the stadiums, every time I played there, they are beautiful and all have a terrific atmosphere."

He added: "There are champions at this club, such as Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard, who can make the difference at any moment and inspire the team.

"I'm thrilled to play alongside them also because I'm sure they will be able to improve my game."

With World Cup year approaching, the Italian also dismissed claims that moving from his home country may hinder his chances of being selected by Azzurri coach Marcello Lippi.

He added: "I don't think I have more or less chance in the Premier League than in Serie A. I'm confident I can deliver and then it's all up to me,

"All the rest will follow, because only on the pitch can you give a good account of yourself."
