Fowler tells Carroll to forget about Liverpool price tag
Former Liverpool striker Robbie Fowler has advised current Reds forward Andy Carroll that to succeed at the club he must put the price paid for him to the back of his mind, the Daily Mail has reported.
Carroll was signed by ex-Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish for £35m in January 2011 but Dalglish’s replacement, Brendan Rodgers, has suggested the former Newcastle United player could leave Anfield on loan if he does not adapt to the way in which Rodgers sees Liverpool playing under his guidance. The 23-year-old has scored 11 goals in 56 games so far for Liverpool, netting nine in 47 appearances last season.
Fowler, a former wearer of Carroll’s No. 9 shirt and scorer of 128 goals in 249 Liverpool games, insists Carroll needs to forget about the sum Liverpool paid to bring him from Newcastle and focus on the qualities that impressed Dalglish in the first place. He said: “What Andy has to do is forget about the price tag and let other people worry about that. It is not as if he was saying "Buy me for £35m". The clubs agreed a fee but he has to forget about that.”
