Maxi plays down Anfield exit talks

Published Add your comment

Maxi Rodriguez has dismissed reports he has left Liverpool following rumours he had joined Newell's Old Boys in his native Argentina, reports

The 31-year-old midfielder has been on the fringes of the Reds' first-team squad for the past couple of seasons. He made 21 appearances in 2011-12, but with the majority of those appearances coming from the substitutes bench, he had been expected to leave Merseyside this summer.

Maxi still has 12 months to run on his existing Liverpool contract, and following the sacking of Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish, was tipped to follow him out of the exit door.

However, newly appointed manager Brendan Rodgers has revealed his intentions to give every player a chance to prove themselves before making a decision on their respective futures.

After being spotted in Rosario earlier this month, it was reported that Maxi had already agreed a move to Newell's prior to the former Swansea boss' appointment, but the South American insists that's not the case.

"I do not know where these things come from," he told Ole newspaper. "I have one year left on my contract at Liverpool and did not talk to anybody."
