The transfer of Andy Carroll produced a great disappointment at Liverpool, both in the stands, where he was heckled for mediocre developments and in offices. The striker brought from Newcastle was the biggest hole in the budget of the Reds in the history of the football club.
Liverpool paid almost 40 million euros in 2011 for his transfer, but Carroll has scored only six goals in the two seasons he played at Anfield Road.
Happy that they can recover some of the money, the heads of the Reds sold to West Ham the English striker for about half of the amount that was paid for him – 19 million euros plus bonuses worth of 3.5 million euros.
English media revealed an important detail: Andy Carroll did not want to leave empty handed from Liverpool, so that the Anfield grouping was forced to pay one million pounds to accept the offer from West Ham.
