Carragher urges patience.
Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool supporters to be patient as the club look for new owners to replace George Gillet and Tom Hicks in the Anfield Boardroom. The American duo’s attempts to refinance their £237 million debts have been rebuffed by Liverpool Chairman Martin Broughton and this news led Liverpool fans to remain behind after their the Sunderland match to protest against their American owners.
Carragher hopes that this unrest doesn’t boil over into a hasty deal to sell the club to the wrong suitors. History will repeat itself should this happen. “It’s about the future of our club, our children,” he said in The Guardian. “There’s a stadium to think about. We have to get it right.”
Torres not to blame.
Fernando Torres’ misfiring start to the 2010/11 season has been cited as one of the main reasons for Liverpool’s inconsistent start to life under Roy Hodgson. Jamie Carragher disagrees however, and has leapt to his teammate’s defence. “We are not a one man show,” he told The Telegraph . “It’s up to us to create the chances for him. History shows that if you create enough you have got a 25-30 goal striker.”
“There’s nothing to worry about with Fernando,” he reassured Liverpool fans. “He will get chances and he will score goals. As a team we have got to do a little bit more.”
Jovanovic exit hint.
Just two months into his Liverpool career and already Milan Jovanovic is contemplating life elsewhere. Quoted in The Sun, he spoke of problems on and off the pitch with the Merseysiders and seemed to be hankering after a move back to his previous club Standard Liege. “I’ve not been in the starting XI for the last few matches – and I’ve not even come on as sub,” he said – highlighting the struggle to break into Roy Hodgson’s team having been signed by Rafa Benitez.“I miss Standard and the city of Liege.”
