McCarthy backs Carroll

Published Add your comment

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy believes Liverpool striker Andy Carroll may have found his £35million price tag a "burden" as he celebrates 12 months at Anfield ahead of tonight's clash at Molineux.

McCarthy is an admirer of Carroll and it is well documented he tried to sign him without success from Newcastle following a loan spell with Preston. He still believes Carroll will be a success at Liverpool but feels he has not been helped by the size of the fee in adjusting to life with one of the Barclays Premier League's leading clubs.

"Andy is still a threat but price tags have made life hard for a lot of people," said McCarthy.
