Liverpool left-back’s mum went on 4am Facebook tirade saying he should have ‘never signed’

A report from liverpoolecho has it that when discussing Liverpool’s worst ever transfers of the Premier League era, you wouldn’t expect a £4m England international full-back to register so highly.Information Guide Nigeria

After all, there’s just so many to choose from big-time villains like the maverick Mario Balotelli and the dastardly El-Hadji Diouf to overpriced misfires such as £35m former record signing Andy Carroll and the £20m apiece quartet of Robbie Keane, Alberto Aquilani, Stewart Downing and Lazar Markovic.Information Guide Nigeria

We can’t talk flops without mentioning Christian Poulsen or Iago Aspas, two players who we are led to believe were supposedly rather good away from Anfield, however hard we find that to believe, and deserve a category all on their own.Information Guide Nigeria

And even if you limit your selection to just full-backs, there is a plethor to pick from, from Julian Dicks back when the Reds were still playing Premiership football to Champions League podium star Josemi, Manchester United and Real Madrid slayer Andrea Dossena and, if you’re feeling mean and want a more modern entry, the eccentric Alberto Moreno.Information Guide Nigeria

Wasn’t life before Jurgen Klopp and his backroom team were in charge of Liverpool recruitment fun?NYSC Portal

But while he wasn’t the most expensive and certainly wasn’t the worst player to have pulled on the famous Red shirt, the groans that greet the mention of Paul Konchesky’s time at Liverpool reiterate his place right near the top of this unloved list. In truth, he was a signing doomed to fail.NYSC Portal

Bought by an unwanted manager under unwanted owners in the midst of the Anfield Civil War, the former left-back has since admitted he made a mistake following his former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson to Liverpool. But it was an opportunity he, like countless others over the years, simply couldn’t turn down.NYSC Portal

“I went to Liverpool in the summer and when you move teams you think it’s going to be a big thing for you really,” he told the Independent in 2011, a few months after leaving the Reds permanently. “It obviously didn’t work out for different reasons. “I can say that (the move was a mistake) now, yes, of course. But at the time I think anyone would have turned their head to go to join Liverpool, who are one of the best teams in the world.

“Their story shows that and it wasn’t to be and all I can say is thanks for the opportunity and I wish them the best and that’s it, really.” “I loved my time at Fulham. I could’ve said no and stayed but when a club comes calling, as in Liverpool, it was hard for me to say no,” he later admitted in 2020.JAMB Result

“When you look at Liverpool’s history as a football club, what they’ve achieved is amazing. I loved every club I played for, but when a massive club like Liverpool come calling you can’t turn it down. The opportunity I had to go was fantastic. “I knew the manager from Fulham, he went in the summer and I knew it could be on the cards when I spoke to him. When it did eventually happen it was a dream come true.JAMB Result

“At the time when Roy went, the club was up for sale so it probably wasn’t a good time to go. Obviously Roy went and took me. Being a London boy I struggled. I can probably speak for Joe Cole as well, I think he struggled being a London boy. “They were difficult times but it was an experience I’ll never forget. I had the privilege of going to play for what we’ll see are the Premier League champions.”JAMB Result

Looking back, spending £4m on a 29-year-old left-back with mid-table pedigree doesn’t seem the wisest move, but perhaps can be overlooked when you consider the tight financial plight Liverpool found themselves facing under owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett and Hodgson’s history with Konchesky.
