I was reading a report on Liverpoolfc.tv today which was talking about how Andriy Voronin is looking forward to next season and that he owes us the fans after not having a successful season in the previous campaign. I can never say I hate any player that wears the red shirt for Liverpool but Voronin let me down, big time last season. Granted it was his first season in a new country and it takes time to settle in etc. But even if he has 5 seasons in the Premiership, I just do not think he is the kind of player who will get the Kop buzzing and score a bag full of goals.
I had thought that Rafa was going to sell him in the summer but judging from the article on the official website, Voronin looks set to stay at Anfield. I must say I was a bit disappointed when I read this article. I really want Voronin to leave so that we can get some cash and buy another decent striker.
On too many occasions when Voronin was fit and playing he looked out of sorts. He scored a cracker of a goal against Toulouse at the beginning of the season and I thought maybe this guy was good but alas I was let down. Whenever I saw Voronin on the pitch, it looked like there was a lady playing for Liverpool because of his long hair that he tied in a ponytail.
Maybe I am being too harsh and maybe I should give him another season since he says he owes us. He better deliver next season if he is still around. We have had too many below par players at Liverpool in the last couple of years and I hope Voronin does not fall in that category.
