Kevin Nolan 'sick' of Andy Carroll saga
Friday 04 February 2011
Newcastle captain Kevin Nolan has apologised to his club's fans for comments praising Andy Carroll's move to Liverpool, admitting he is "getting quite sick of the whole saga".
Reds fan Nolan was interviewed by Liverpool TV about his friend's £35million move from Newcastle to Anfield this week, saying he was "delighted" Carroll was joining a "fantastic club".
The comments apparently caused consternation on Tyneside, with Nolan quick to play down the comments.
"If fans don't like it, I apologise," he said.
"It was never meant to affect them. But Liverpool is a great club and everyone knows that.
"There's no-one more disappointed than me.
"Not only have we lost a top player but I've lost a good mate who was very close."
Nolan added: "To be honest, I'm getting quite sick of the whole Andy Carroll saga. I just want to put it to bed and get on with it.
"The last thing I want is to start upsetting our fans because they have been brilliant."
