Liverpool legend Kennedy says summer signings need more time

Liverpool striker Andy Carroll and his fellow summer signings need more time to adapt to life on Merseyside and the expectation of playing at Anfield, Liverpool legend Alan Kennedy has told the Daily Post.

Kennedy moved to Liverpool from Newcastle United in 1978 and remains the only Englishman to score winning goals in two European Cup finals, netting in a 1-0 win over Real Madrid in 1981 and then converting the decisive penalty in a 4-2 shootout victory over Roma in 1984 after the match had been drawn 1-1. Kennedy went on to make more than 250 appearances for Liverpool in a seven-year spell on Merseyside.

The new signings will have known all about Liverpool but until you get there you don’t really know what it is like,” Kennedy told the newspaper, adding: “It does take time.

Carroll and Jose Enrique return to their former club on Sunday when Liverpool meet Newcastle United at the Sports Direct Arena, formerly St James’ Park, while ex-Middlesbrough winger Stewart Downing and Jordan Henderson, bought from Sunderland, face a trip to the home of their previous North East rivals.
