The Moroccan recently completed a £4.7m move to Al Ahli, but left with something of a parting shot, having made just 12 appearances under the Northern Irishman during his time on Merseyside.
“To be honest I never got a fair chance at Liverpool,” he said in the Daily Express. “If you look at the games I played I don’t think I did that bad.
“Liverpool is a big club that tries to buy and buy and buy, but they don’t always buy the right players. They look to big names but big names are not always the thing to look for because the small names are sometimes better.
“But they buy big names for big money and then they have to play them. That’s how it works in Europe, you have to be a bit lucky. I came from a small club in Holland [Heerenveen] and I took a big step to go to Liverpool because they said I was a good player and would get a chance, but I didn’t get the chance.
“I had wanted to join Ajax after Heerenveen, and perhaps after Ajax I could have gone to a bigger club like Liverpool, maybe I made the wrong decision to go to Liverpool early.”
