The Italian was immediately put into action for the afternoon opening race this afternoon at Huddersfield.Merson is a fan of the 26 year old and calculates, if allowed, he can become a player at Chelsea.However, it's a bit 'Worried about Jorginho could be a flop like Aquilani did in Liverpool. "I think Jorginho is a suitable player," said Merson on Sky Sports. "He only hopes he does not finish like an Aquilani" When he arrived in Liverpool, he had all those figures, he was the best passer-by in Italy. "They do not play like we do.In Italy you lose the ball from the goalkeeper, you raise your head and you start spraying left, right and center. "When Aquilani arrived, he would have taken the ball and someone (would have taken) and it would have been like" where's the ball's over? ". So all things will take time. "But he will become a suitable player when he gets used to the game." I can understand what he is saying, I think it will take time. "Aquilani arrived in Liverpool from Rome in 2009 for a cost of about 20 million pounds, making only 28 appearances in a three-year period at Anfield, scoring two goals." Aquilani was twice on loan during his time in Liverpool before leaving for a permanent agreement with Fiorentina in 2012.
