Ex-Reds front-man aims dig at old manager.
West Ham United star and former Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has hit out at his old manager Brendan Rodgers for the way he handled his Anfield exit, according to the Daily Mail.
The 26-year-old will be coming up against his old side this weekend and has stoked the fires ahead of the clash by criticising Rodgers for broken promises during his time on Merseyside.
Carroll insists Rodgers told him he’d be playing regularly shortly before informing him of his plans to let him go.
“With Brendan Rodgers there was a lot going on, with what he was saying to me and what was actually happening,” Carroll said.
“He’d say, ‘you’re going to play every week, you’re going to play every game with (Luis) Suarez up front.’ I’d leave and get home and he’d ring me and say, ‘Fulham and West Ham want you, I think it’s best you should go’ when I’d just had a different conversation with him 10 minutes ago.
“I’d go back to see him and he’d say the opposite again. It was the same thing, round and round. He was telling me one thing to my face and then ring me and tell me a different thing. He was messing with my head.
“I thought, ‘I just want to play football. I don’t need this.’ I lost respect for him to be honest and knew it was time to go.”
