Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has left the future of Andy Carroll up in the air amid reports that AC Milan are preparing a loan bid for the England striker.
Carroll endured a testing first year at Anfield, often struggling to hold down a first-team spot as he failed to live up to his hefty price tag. A brief upturn in form towards the end of the season saw Carroll selected for England’s Euro 2012 squad, but it remains to be seen if he fits into Rodgers’ passing style of football.
“He’s a good player, Andy. He’ll always be linked to clubs whether he’s here or not,” Rodgers said during Monday’s press conference. “I spoke to Andy on his holidays, and he knows where he stands.
“I’ve spoke to a lot of the players and he’s a very good young player. He’ll be linked to many clubs because he’s a good player.
“I haven’t had anything from them [Milan].”
Have to say I would be totally shocked in Liverpool let Carroll go out on loan this season, especially to Milan, whose style of football is not conducive to Carroll’s style of play.
If Rodgers is not impressed with him, I am sure a host of Premier League clubs would be interested in taking Andy Carroll on loan, especially the way he finished the season and played in the Euros.
