Andy Carroll stays at West Ham despite striker shortage at Liverpool
Friday 19 October 2012
Brendan Rodgers says he will not recall the £35m striker Andy Carroll from loan in January, despite Liverpool's shortage of players up front.
Fabio Borini could be out for up to three months after requiring surgery on a broken foot, leaving Rodgers with Luis Suarez as his only recognised first-team striker.
But the Liverpool manager said he has not even thought about recalling Carroll from his season-long loan at West Ham.
"It isn't something I have considered," Rodgers said. "Andy has obviously gone out to get games. We have people watching and they report back on how he is doing. But with Fabio's injury just coming up we will assess it from there."
