Oussama Assaidi wants Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers to give him an opportunity at the club next season.

Oussama Assaidi has urged Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers to give him a chance at the club next season.

The 25-year-old Moroccan forward is due to return to Anfield this summer when his loan spell with Stoke City finishes.

While Assaidi admits that he is unsure where he will be playing next term, he hopes that he will be given the opportunity to impress on Merseyside.

"I'm unsure what Stoke or Liverpool wants," he told Stoke's official website. "I am really happy to play for Stoke and I am happy they gave me a chance to play regularly.

"I get on well with my team-mates and I'm very happy playing for the manager here. The club is good for me and my time here has been a good one. I still have a contract with Liverpool and I hope the boss gives me a chance.

"If not, I do not want to sit on the bench because I want to play games so you never know what can happen in the future."

Assaidi has scored four goals in 22 games for Stoke this season.
