Allardyce: Carroll swayed by loan

first_img “He came to us in a difficult frame of mind and had suffered with injuries but the support the coaching staff and the rest of the boys that work so hard behind the scenes was something he felt very comfortable with in the end. “He met new team-mates over the year and enjoyed their company and I think that definitely helped him to make the decision to return to West Ham. So not only did the loan pay off by us finishing 10th in our first season back in the Premier League but it has paid off by him choosing us.” Carroll struggled for form at Anfield after completing a £35million switch from Newcastle and was farmed out to West Ham when it became apparent he did not fit into the new approach taken by Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers. He has now penned a six-year deal at West Ham, with Allardyce hoping he will lead the line for his side in the coming seasons. “The size of the contract is a statement of West Ham’s belief in Andy and Andy’s belief in West Ham,” he said. “We expect him to enhance his reputation even further with West Ham and become one of the major strikers in the country and become an England regular – we hope he will produce for West Ham and England as we prepare to move into the Olympic Stadium in 2016. “We’ve acquired a player who was recently the most expensive British player in the history of football. We haven’t done it cheaply, but we have definitely done it wisely. “I told him we will improve him at West Ham while we’re at the helm and will give him a chance to become a better player. It will reap rewards for us all. He can now put his experience of Liverpool behind him and show them what they missed by letting him go.” Carroll, 24, was signed for an undisclosed club-record fee by the Hammers on Thursday after impressing for large spells of a season-long loan deal at the club last season. The former Newcastle forward was identified by Allardyce at the start of the summer as his main priority ahead of a second successive Barclays Premier League campaign. With Carroll’s close friend Kevin Nolan captaining West Ham, and relationships struck up during his spell in east London, Allardyce believes the experience of the loan move was invaluable in enticing Carroll to the club. “Our relationship over the 12 months he was here was key to this deal,” he told the club’s official website. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce believes the year Andy Carroll spent on loan at Upton Park swayed the England striker’s decision to complete a permanent move from Liverpool.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Fellaini angered by Riether stamp

first_img Riether was not punished for his actions by referee Lee Probert, which came in the last minute of Fulham’s 3-1 defeat to United, but on the face of it it did look like the type of incident new Football Association chairman Greg Dyke wants to clamp down on. “For me it was a red card for the right back,” the Belgian told MUTV. Marouane Fellaini has called for retrospective action to be taken against Fulham defender Sascha Riether for his apparent stamp on Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj at Craven Cottage on Saturday. “I hope the referee looks at the video later.” United manager David Moyes was more philosophical as his team extended their unbeaten run. “We are never going to ask for (protection),” said Moyes. “We want him to get up. We don’t want him to go down easily. “He is a really honest boy and I thought there were a couple of times when fouls should have been given against him but they weren’t.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Reported bid sparks Rojo row

first_imgA row has broken out between the representatives and part-owners of reported Manchester United target Marcos Rojo and his current club Sporting Lisbon. It is reported that Doyen is entitled to a payment from Sporting worth 75 per cent of any declined offer for Rojo. In this instance that would equate to £12million. In a lengthy statement, Doyen Sports has stressed it cannot interfere in transfer business and that Sporting have a right to retain the player. But it has pointed out that in such a scenario the club still have obligations to the company. The statement read: “Sporting is entirely within its rights not to transfer the player Marcos Rojo, knowing that it only has to make up for the fund under the terms and deadlines as contractually established since the beginning.” It added the company “will not hesitate to use all legal resources at our disposal to defend fully all our interests and rights”. Doyen holds strong rights over the player after paying 75 per cent of his transfer fee from Spartak Moscow in 2012. The statement added: “Without the intervention of Doyen, through financing, Marcos Rojo would not be a Sporting player.” Sporting have responded with their own detailed statement which alleges interference from Doyen. They insist they have had “just cause” to terminate their agreement with the company, therefore suggesting they do not intend to pay any fees. Sporting, who are reported to be holding out for a figure closer to the player’s £24million release clause, have also confirmed that Spartak are owed 20 per cent of any fee received for Rojo above £4million. Argentina defender Rojo is currently the subject of disciplinary action by the Portuguese club after apparently refusing to train amid reports of a £16million bid from United. Management company Doyen Sports, which owns 75 per cent of the player, has now hit back over Sporting’s stance and threatened legal action if fees due to it from any rejected bid are not paid. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Brendan Rodgers: Daniel Sturridge is fittest he has been for 18 months

first_img Last season they went to Old Trafford and enjoyed the majority of chances only to lose 3-0, but Rodgers is confident there will be no repeat of the shambolic defensive performance against the Hammers. Dejan Lovren came in for most criticism as his mistake led to the crucial second goal but his manager has backed the Croatia international, who endured a tough start to his Liverpool career last season, to bounce back. “Like all the players know we performed below our level in that game but it was a collective,” added Rodgers. “We can’t isolate any performance on to one player. Dejan knows he made a mistake and you have to live with that as a player. “We never stick the blame on to one player. We fell below the standards in that game. “In his first three games he showed he has that quality and consistency to defend well, so the key is letting go of the mistake and showing your character.” Liverpool will be without suspended playmaker Philippe Coutinho on Saturday after his red card against West Ham, so striker Danny Ings or winger Jordon Ibe are in contention to start. “There is no timeline as to when he will be fit to participate in the game but he is obviously back in training, which is good,” said Rodgers. “He looked really sharp in training, probably the best he’s looked fitness-wise for 18 months, and it will be really good when he gets back. “I can never say that (he is over the worst of his injuries) because I don’t want to sit here and something happens in a couple of months’ time. “I can only look at what I see and from my experiences in the past I don’t want to put any timeline on him coming back. “I am grateful for the work done in America, for our own medical team who have done a brilliant job to do everything they possibly could to get Daniel back to a level of fitness. “He has worked hard. He has joined in with the group and we will take it from there, day-by-day.” Liverpool go into Saturday’s game having been humiliated 3-0 at home by West Ham before the international break which saw them concede their first goals of the season. Having only scored twice in four matches – with those coming in the opening two games – the side are also struggling up front. The England striker, who spent most of the summer undergoing rehabilitation in the United States, returned to full training with the rest of the squad this week after recovering from a hip operation in May. He will not be ready for Saturday’s match against Manchester United at Old Trafford but his impending return will boost a goal-shy squad which has scored just two goals in four matches and none in their last two. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers believes striker Daniel Sturridge is the fittest he has been for 18 months, but will still handle him with caution. Press Associationlast_img read more
