Andy Carroll admitted he didn’t really appreciate what he had in Liverpool, following his then record-breaking £35m transfer in 2011.

Speaking to The Athletic, the former Reds striker has told he hadn’t taken full advantage of the opportunity he was granted there.

“I’d just bought a house in Newcastle, so I was sorting that out, then I was in a hotel in Liverpool not knowing the city, not knowing anyone,” the 32-year-old said.

 

“I couldn’t get to grips with it, or how to live and how to be at that club.

 

“The way I’d played at Newcastle – that was how I wanted to play.

 

“But Liverpool was completely different. I should have embraced their ideas, what they wanted.

 

“Thinking back, I really didn’t appreciate what I had and what I could have achieved.”

The move to Anfield didn’t work out for the Englishman, which later made him go on loan to West Ham for the 2012/13 campaign.
