Liverpool's Spanish striker 'wants shock Anfield exit'

Published Add your comment

Liverpool starlet Daniel Pacheco reportedly wants to leave Anfield.

According to the website of Spanish football expert Guillem Balague, Pacheco has set his sights on a Liverpool exit after struggling to force his way into Roy Hodgson's first team at Anfield.

"Dani Pacheco was told by Roy Hodgson that he would be included in his plans, and the fact that the Spanish youngster has spent three years at Anfield, qualifying him as a 'home-grown' talent helped him secure a professional contract at Liverpool," wrote Balague.

"However, after failing to be selected by Hodgson, Pacheco wishes to leave Liverpool. Real Sociedad had wanted to take Pacheco on loan last summer."

This news may come as a surprise to a number of Liverpool fans after it was revealed earlier this month that Hodgson had requested the 19-year-old striker was deployed on the wing in reserve matches - with a view to him occupying the same role in the first XI.

"The boss is keen on him," reserve team coach John McMahon told the official Liverpool website.

"He sees Dani filling those wide roles, so when he plays for the reserves he occupies those positions and learns to adapt and play in them.

"It's good for his development to learn several roles and it will only benefit him, especially if he's required to do a job for the first-team."

However, Pacheco appears to have slipped down the pecking order at Anfield, having featured just once in the Premier League this campaign as a substitute against Manchester City.
