Aspas has 'nothing to prove'

Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas believes he doesn’t ‘have anything to prove to anyone’ in England ahead of the side’s Europa League clash at Old Trafford.

The 29-year-old has netted 24 goals for the Galicians in a stellar season, but he is still widely remembered in England for a disappointing stint at Liverpool in the 2013-14 campaign.

"I don't have anything to prove to anyone,” told Faro de Vigo.

"There is no need for it, and I think I've already proved my worth there having scored a goal against England with the national team.

"I don't know if I will play in a different position on Thursday, but I think [coach Eduardo] Berizzo will make the necessary tactical changes in order for us to have more fluidity."

In a separate interview El Atlantico Diario, Aspas added Celta knew they would face "a challenge because of the team we are up against and the venue we will play at."

"This game is one of the most important of my career. I've already won a Europa League with Sevilla, but now I have a bigger role in this team.

"I hope I can give a good performance and help the team win and reach the final."
