Liverpool’s £35 million star being investigated?

Published Add your comment

It has been revealed that Liverpool’s new golden boy Andy Carroll might be investigated by the FA over whether the striker used a manager to complete his £35 million signing with the Kop.

Whilst officially Liverpool does not have a manager listed as being part of the signing, they have listed an advisor.

Carroll is currently reported to be in dispute with his former manager, Peter Harrison, over a breach of contract. Should Carroll have used a manager to help sign him with Liverpool, this could represent a conflict of interest.


Sky News is reporting that the FA have refused to answer a series of questions regarding the matter.

And FA spokesperson told Sky News, "I am afraid we will not be in a position to confirm any details or information related to the transfer of Andy Carroll.

"You are best advised to put these questions directly to the individuals and/or organisations concerned in accordance with our normal procedures.”

Carroll moved to Liverpool from Newcastle United in January for a record £35 million, and while the 22 year old has been recovering from injury, he debuted against Manchester United two weeks ago. The star striker has yet to start a game for Liverpool.
