Christian Poulsen has insisted that there is no chance of him returning to Liverpool at the end of his one-year deal with French side Evian, Sky
The 31 year old’s deal with Evian comes to an end in May and Poulsen has to think of his options, but one he will not consider is a return to Anfield. Poulsen signed for Liverpool under former boss Roy Hodgson for £4.5m, but failed to impress and did not feature regularly. Evian have impressed the Danish international and Poulsen is hoping to secure a deal which means he would stay with the French side beyond this summer.
Poulsen said: ‘From the start I stated I would finish the season here. Nowadays I say I could remain after the summer. Moreover, I have three children. It is difficult for them to change city all the time. Liverpool? It is over for me there. If I was a 25-year-old it could be different, but I will be 32 and I am not interested in being a number 20 player. Here, when I talk to a player, I know it could be helpful. I feel more important here than at Liverpool.’
Dalglish does not want Poulsen back in his side and has enough midfielders with Steven Gerrard, Charlie Adam and the injured Lucas Leiva to compete for central midfield positions. The Liverpool boss also has his eye on Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila, who has impressed for both France and his club in the last season.
