Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Aldo insisted that Liverpool should've followed the example of Arsenal and Manchester United and brought back one of its former players:
"Robbie Keane would have been perfect fit for Liverpool FC.
"I looked at Robbie going on loan to Aston Villa for six weeks and thought about what could have been for Liverpool.
"Having the Republic of Ireland international back at the club would’ve been great and, like Craig Bellamy, Keane would have been welcomed back by the Kop, I’m sure.
"I believe Kenny Dalglish would have got the best of Keane if he had come back but I now can’t really see us going in for anyone".
Hmmm, a hint of Republic of Ireland bias there, perhaps? ;-)
Keane's first spell at Anfield was far from successful, but that was (arguably) down to the 'Benitez Effect, which saw Keane subbed or benched in 23 of of his 28 appearances.
I'm not sure Kenny would've got the best out of Keane either; he has has definitely not got the best out of Andy Carroll; Luis Suarez has not scored enough goals (Prior to his suspension, he'd managed only 1 league goal in 11 games), and Dirk Kuyt has not scored since last season!
Is Aldo right - would Liverpool fans have been happy with a Keane loan deal, or did the club dodge yet another bullet?
