Voronin targets Liverpool return

Outspoken Voronin targets Liverpool return as he's too big for Berlin
By WILLIAM STEWART

Ukranian striker Andriy Voronin has revealed he dreams of returning to Liverpool after being farmed out on loan to German side Hertha Berlin.
The outspoken striker, who earlier this year launched an attack on Britain and Liverpool, claims being a big star in Berlin is not enough and he wants to link up with Steven Gerrard again at Anfield.
He told Pro Sport magazine in Russia: 'It's an absolutely different level of football.
'I'm a leader at Hertha and feel their fans love me but I would like to be a leader in a team which is always fighting to win the Premier League, the Champions League and which have such people playing for them as Steven Gerrard who is a symbol of the city like the Beatles.
'I see no sense in staying in Berlin saying to myself: 'OK, everyone loves me here, why do I need to play for Livepool?'   
'I'd really like a new start there. I have a contract with them for two more years. When I joined Liverpool I knew I could play at such a high level and think I proved it. The rotation of the squad by Benitez really enraged me, but he told me from the start about that and I should have been prepared for it.'
Voronin's claims, after several months at Hertha on loan, are in stark contrast to comments he made in April, when he savaged Liverpool and life in Britain.
Back then he condemned the UK as a cultural backwater with poor health care and high crime rate.
Although his 24-year-old wife Yulia was named the worst-dressed soccer WAG after wearing a leopard-print velour tracksuit, he said Britain was far less sophisticated than Germany.

Voronin, who moved to Liverpool from Bayer Leverkusen in Germany at the beginning of the season, said: 'Compared with Germany, England is far behind in terms of comfort and culture.
'Five out of the seven houses near us are occupied by footballers.
'Steve Gerrard was burgled recently so a police patrol car comes into our compound fairly often. We hear police sirens all the time. Leverkusen, by contrast, was so much quieter.'
He continued: 'The medical services here are poor. When I was in Germany, there were lots of good clinics and doctors.
'It is nothing like that here - when our child had a skin allergy we waited hours for the doctor to see him. When we finally got to see a doctor, he said he didn't know how to treat children and told us to try rubbing in this ointment.
'That was it. I was stunned. As a result my wife had to go back to Odessa with him and took a full set of tests there.'
He added: 'English isn't the main problem. The main thing is to learn to understand the local players like Gerrard and Carragher.
'They speak with some peculiar local accent and sometimes I have absolutely no clue what the guys are saying. Many foreign players have the same problem.'

Half the interview is quotes from last year that were taking our context and the SS Daily is throwing back at him because he's a dirty, dirty foreigner. The 'new' part is him showing a bit of ambition by wanting to make a big player of himself at a big club. Do I want him back? No. Do I feel the need to castigate a guy for showing some ambition? Fuck no.

He's only played six games for Berlin scoring two goals. His record is poor and so is he as a striker. Showed some good technical ability for us in some games, but not enough to warrant first team. Let him stay in Germany, we've got Robbie Kean now. ;D

WHAT THE PAPERS SAY
 

Forever Voronin?

Mopo

Andrej Voronin feels so at home in Berlin that he would like to stay at the capital city club. That is music to the ears of manager Dieter Hoeneß:"I plan to talk to Liverpool." It will be a tough nut to crack, because the Reds were demanding between 5 and 6 million Euros for the on-loan striker last summer - too much for cash-strapped Hertha. Luckily, coach Lucien Favre is on good terms with the Liberpool boss Rafa Benitez, so watch this space.

Err...no you didn't. ??? And if it wasn't for the rotation you wouldn't have got a single game - as if he expected to keep Torres and Crouch on the bench every week - he's delusional!

Rafa's biggest mistake last season was to think we had 3 first-team strikers at the club, and involve this muppet in the rotation. It's no co-incidence that we started playing well and winning consistently when he got injured.

What a fucking liability.
I think we'd have won the league if we'd sold Keane to Man United.

I just find the whole situation bizarre and extremely hypocritical. We have various threads complaining about the reaction of posters during the "In game" threads and how we should all support the team/players no matter the situation. Then we have these same posters who seem ambivalent of their own advice and see fit calling one of our players a c*nt.

Although his 24-year-old wife Yulia was named the worst-dressed soccer WAG after wearing a leopard-print velour tracksuit, he said Britain was far less sophisticated than Germany.



[/quote]So the Mail are saying that Voro's, imo accurate comments about his frankly typical experience of our crumbling NHS are invalid cos his wife wore a dodgy tracksuit once.

They didn't even notice the irony in sneering at the suggestion that Germany is more sophisticated then England, using a presumably English "worst-dressed soccer  WAG" poll.
Maybe Germany isn't quite sophisticated enough to have such cultural wonders.  ::)

*For what it's worth i really can't see what Voronin has done so terribly wrong to warrant so much shit.
He's not the greatest player in the world. Get the fuck over it. He's not that shit and we got him for nothing. We'll sell him at some point for more then nothing. He hasn't taken anything away from us and is hardly doing a Diao. Even Though he looks like, and comes across as a bit of a twat I'm just not as angry with him as some on here.

What's wrong with him wanting to make it at Liverpool. wouldn't you?

I mean, he comes here for no money, turns out to be shit and gets loaned out the following season. He has the nerve to suggest our health service isn't as good as Germany's when we all know the NHS is the bestest ever AND says he sometimes can't understand the very broad dialect spoken by a couple of team mates (by the way, hasn't just about every foreign player said the same for the last 25 years).

He's a fucking disgrace and I for one, won't be welcoming back, in fact, I think we should burn him!!!

I seem to recall a match v Spurs last season before Voronin got injured when H e run his socks off (a la Dirk) was everywhere , he also scored a good opportunistic goal @ spurs last game of the Pl 07/08 ,,scored a couple of decent goals pre-season, short memories & inconsistency amongst our support, I am not saying I want to ham in the first team regularly but hes a decent fringe player  ...the media winds us all up, and once again a player who is still a RED (while he is on our books ) is vilified by "fans" who should know better...dont do this, its what mancs & the mainstream media love...
