Carroll wants to face Newcastle

Published Add your comment

Liverpool star signing Andy Carroll is fighting to be fit for his first face off with old club Newcastle on Sunday, and the striker has told sources he is looking forward to catching up with old friends once more.

“There’s no bad blood between Andy and anybody at Newcastle, he is still friendly with everybody at the club. And that’s why he’s so keen to play on Sunday,” a source told the Chronicle.


“But he knows that the final decision rests with Kenny Dalglish and after the 5-0 win over Birmingham, there’s no guarantee that anybody will walk straight back into the side.”

Carroll sat in the stands as Liverpool took on Birmingham last weekend, after injuring his knee the week before. The Liverpool striker moved from Newcastle for a record signing of £35 million in January this year, and should he play this weekend, it will be the first time Carroll has been in opposition to Newcastle.

The Chronicle has reported though that this will not be the first time Carroll has seen Newcastle up close since signing with Liverpool, with the striker attending St James' Park for the 0-0 draw with Manchester United last Tuesday, sitting in a private box.

The youngster will no doubt be emotional if he takes on his old side in a Liverpool jumper for the first time.
