The Mirror is reporting today that Dani Pacheco could be joining relegated Blackpool on loan for the whole of the coming season. The young Spanish forward spent the second half of last season on loan at Norwaich where he had a very good spell. Now he may go back to the Championship and try help Blackpool gain promotion back into the Premier League.
Pacheco going to Blackpool on loan could have something to do with Liverpool signing Charlie Adam. Maybe one of the conditions of Blackpool agreeing to sell Adam to Liverpool was that they would get one, if not more, of our players on loan.
In the case of Pacheco, he has shown a great deal of potential at Liverpool with many fans calling for him to be given a chance in the first team. But with the limited games Liverpool have this season due to not having any European football, Pacheco’s chances will be limited in the first team and thus a move to another team where he can get regular football would be beneficial to his career.
But I wonder if Pacheco sees it this way? Maybe he can see that he will not get his crack at Liverpool anytime soon and he may decide to leave the club permanently. It would be a shame if this happens as I believe in two or three seasons time, Pacheco is going to be a real gem.
