Liverpool's Iago Aspas has admitted that he is unhappy in his role as a substitute with his new club, according to the Daily Mail.

The attacking-midfielder moved to Anfield from Spanish club Celta Vigo over the summer for £7.5 million as part of a widespread recruitment drive on Merseyside.

The Reds are reaping the rewards for their hard work as they are currently in second place in the Premier League in their quest to return to Champions League football.

However, poor form and intense competition for places have meant that the 26-year-old hasn't made the impression he would perhaps be striving for.

The Spaniard started the first three games for Brendan Rodgers' side without lasting the full 90 minutes in any of those, since then, he has only made one start in which he was hauled off at half-time in the defeat to Southampton.

The return of influential striker Luis Suarez and the tactics reshuffle that followed the Uruguayan have limited the goal-less Aspas even further. 

''I'm finding it hard to be a sub at Liverpool having started games in the past few years,'' he commented.

''When I left Celta Vigo I was aware that to start for Liverpool wasn't going to be easy..

''And now the team is winning and we are among the leaders in the Premier League, it's much hard to get a game.

''I hope to carry on working hard and little by little to get more game time with Liverpool. I want to change the current situation.''
