Maxi Rodriguez to make Liverpool exit
Maxi Rodriguez has opted for a move back to Argentina, despite new Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers being keen him at Anfield.
According to the Mirror the Argentine winger has decided to return to his home club Newell’s Old Boys after much deliberation.
The 31-year-old started his career at Newell’s Old Boys, scoring 20 goals in 57 games in his first spell there. He is now ready to return and link up with new manager and fellow club legend Gerardo Martino, who himself had three spells at the club. Martino was recently voted the club’s best ever player so it is no surprise that Maxi wants to play under him back in his hometown of Rosario.
Signing for Liverpool from Athletico Madrid in 2009, Maxi played 72 games in total for the red half of Merseyide, netting 17 times in that period.
It would appear that his departure will pave way for new signings with speculation mounting that Rodgers still has 4 or 5 transfers to complete. He already has completed a deal for striker Fabio Borini and his said to be close to getting attacking midfielder Gaston Ramirez from Bologna.
