"I was fit at the beginning of the season but I wasn't playing. There is no point in staying here. I want to play football. I can't say my Liverpool career has been great. Nor can I say it has been bad. I've had good times, I've had bad times. Actually I have been through everything since I have been at Liverpool. Whatever you can experience, I have experienced."
