Maxi Rodriguez wants to stay at Liverpool. The 30-year-old, who arrived from Atletico Madrid in January 2010, has two years remaining on his current Reds deal, and says he is eager to see out the remainder of his contract at the club. “I am really happy here,” said Maxi. “The people have treated us really well. The type of life we have here, the way of life, is very different to what we were used to after nine years in Spain but I am enjoying everything. How can you not enjoy it? I am at a great club and it is great to play here.”

Maxi has found some form in the last couple of games for Liverpool, he has scored four times in the last two games to help Liverpool go above Tottenham in the table in a bid to clinch a Europa League place for next season.

Maxi has not had the best of seasons for Liverpool as I recall earlier in the season under Roy Hodgson when Maxi missed some sitters right infront of goal. But over the last two games, it seems like Maxi has been playing to save his Liverpool career and thus he has been playing very well.

Mr. Henry made it clear when he took over Liverpool that the wage bill at the club was too high and he will be looking to trim it down come this summer. With Maxi earning a reported £90,000-a-week and being 30 years old and not a guaranteed starting line-up player, will Maxi be one of the players Mr. Henry is looking at axing in order to cut the wage bill?

    Maxi is a decent squad player, but I dont think he is worth £90K per week, If I were the King I would move him on

    I doubt him earning £90,000 per week. Where have you heard that? It doesn’t help anyone that we throw figures around that we know nothing about and until we know what his salary is like I don’t think we should judge him from it. With you putting unconfirmed numbers in the headline you impose your critical view of him on others and from there we spread the ignorance. IF those numbers are indeed true then I agree with you, we should not keep him. But I’ve heard sums around £50,000-60,000 which I find more decent and that together with his obvious quality and his true desire to stay in Liverpool and fight for titles makes me want to keep him. Imagine having players of his calibre on the bench – then we really should be able to challenge next season.

    I agree with Johan but for different reasons, my view is that we should judge players ontheir performance on the pitch and let the club worry about how much they are worth. I think maxi fits in well to the current setup i.e Suarez, Kuyt and support from Mireles in midfield, I think he could blossom if played regularly. I have to say i was a great admirer of Carrol and was screaming for his signing long before Christmas but right now he would’nt be in the starting line up – Maxi would. Its the old adage about not changing a winning team.

    I do not know where from you got the £90,000 per week figure from? I guess you are confused it with Joe Cole’s figures here.
    I think he has always been a decent player with a great attitude. If Kenny thought he is good enough to give a go before the likes of Joe Cole, Jono, Andy, then he is fine for me too. If some player says I want to play for this club, then let’s not mock it. He is far better than a few other players who quit us when we went out champions league.
