Werner: Rodgers decides on Carroll

Published Add your comment

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner insists manager Brendan Rodgers will have the final say on the future of £35million striker Andy Carroll.

The 23-year-old England international has been the subject of intense speculation ever since Rodgers hinted earlier this summer that he might not have a future at Anfield. Carroll's situation remained unclear as he headed for North America to join up with his team-mates in Boston, after an extended break following the European Championship.

However, Werner is adamant that any decision will be down to Rodgers and he told Sky Sports News: "The only thing I can say is we will do what's best for the club. Brendan is clearly the leader here, and hopefully the question will be answered shortly. But at the moment, Andy is on the team and we are looking forward to his contributions."
