Liverpool’s on loan to West Ham United striker Andy Carroll believes he wasn’t given a “fair chance” to succeed at Liverpool.
The 23 year old scored just six Premier League goals in his 44 games with the club after joining Liverpool from Newcastle in January 2011 and now the Striker has hit out at Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers by claiming that he was not given a fair chance to prove himself at Anfield.
“I haven’t really had a fair chance at Liverpool. I was really told that I should move on to keep playing regular football, and obviously then Sam [Allardyce] wanted me here [West Ham United] and told me I would be playing regular games.
“So, for me it was a no-brainer coming here and to play. Obviously, I didn’t really get a chance there.
“A new manager came in and I wasn’t part of his plans. For me to play football, that was my chance to do that. That is why I am here at Upton Park.
“I think I could fit into every system. I believe in what I can do. Obviously he [Rodgers] has his beliefs and he didn’t think that.
“But for me, obviously, it was better to move on instead of waiting for my chance – which he told me might not come”.
By now we all know how Brendan Rodgers wants his strikers to work in his new Philosophy. He wants them to be Technically efficient, work tirelessly and close down players when not in possession and personally I don’t see Carroll fitting into this system.
Share us your opinion. Does Carroll have a point here? or was it a right move from Brendan Rodgers to loan him out?? Who should be bought in next window to replace him?8 Comments
