Aquilani making good progress says Benitez

Rafael Benitez has today revealed new signing Alberto Aquilani is making good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury reports the official site. No date has been put on the Italians debut, but the Reds boss says the player is doing well under the expert guidance of Melwood's medical staff.

"Alberto is improving," said Benitez.

"We were talking before about six to eight weeks and after a few weeks his ankle is much better but he will need time.

"He's in the swimming pool and in the gym and working with the physios but he's not jogging yet.

"We cannot put a date on things and it's important to just see how he progresses.

"We are checking on him regularly and he had a scan in the past week which showed he is much better.

"It's just a case of keeping an eye on him every day. When he does start to play everyone will see what a clever player he is."
