Rodriguez denies Liverpool exit agreed

Liverpool midfielder Maxi Rodriguez has denied reports he has agreed a move away from Anfield, according to the Liverpool Echo, after it was suggested the Argentinean was on the verge of a return to his native country with Newell’s Old Boys.

Rodriguez, 31, is said by the Echo to be in Argentina after the birth of his daughter but denied he had lined-up a permanent switch back to South America. He said: “I do not know where these things come from. I have one year left on my contract at Liverpool and did not talk to anybody.

The Echo however notes that it appeared Rodriguez was saying goodbye to the Liverpool faithful after the final home game of last season, having grown frustrated at a lack of playing time under Kenny Dalglish, the former manager who was sacked in May. The arrival of Brendan Rodgers then gives Rodriguez a fresh opportunity to establish his place in the side.

Rodriguez was brought to Liverpool by Rafael Benitez in 2010, signed from Atletico Madrid having spent four and a half years at the club. Newell’s were Rodriguez’s first team, the club he left to move to Europe with Espanyol in 2002.
