Carroll unhappy with treatment
West Ham United,
West Ham's on loan striker Andy Carroll has spoken out about his parent club Liverpool and says he was never given a chance to succeed.
Carroll broke the Anfield transfer record when he moved from Newcastle for £35 million under former manager Kenny Dalglish, but only managed to score six goals in his 44 games with the club. The England international feels that he was treated harshly by the Merseyside club and was told that he would have to look for his football elsewhere in order to get regular football. The 23-year-old has performed well at West Ham and although he missed out on a couple of weeks with a hamstring injury he was thrown straight back into the fray for the 4-1 win over Southampton at the weekend. "I haven't really had a fair chance at Liverpool," Carroll told ESPN. "I was really told that I should move on to keep playing regular football, and obviously then Sam (Allardyce) wanted me here and told me I would be playing regular games." "Coming here, I have got a great chance to start games and score goals, which I haven't really had many of last season."
