‘I did not like that’: Attacker reveals why he has ‘decided to leave’ Liverpool

Liverpool is a club which has often taken pride in its ability to groom youngsters into stars over the years and some of those players, like Raheem Sterling, have even moved on after making their first team breakthrough at Anfield.

Bobby Adekanye was one of the youngsters on the Reds’ books last season, as he patiently waited for a chance to feature for Jurgen Klopp’s first team.

The 20-year-old agreed to join Liverpool’s youth ranks back in 2015, after deciding to leave FC Barcelona’s La Masia academy to find better opportunities elsewhere.

Adekanye was troubled by injuries during his time on Merseyside, but he was occasionally given a chance to mingle with the senior squad in training sessions.

The young attacker was never handed the opportunity he craved at Liverpool and last week, he agreed to join Lazio (Goal) on a permanent transfer after deciding to not renew his contract with the Reds.

Adekanye has spoken about why opted to choose a new club, revealing that being left out of the senior team during the season damaged his desire to stay.

“At Liverpool I would go with the first team to the United States, but after that be with the Under-23s again”, Adekanye said, as quoted by Inside Futbol

“I did not like that, so I decided to leave.”

The winger also revealed that Lazio was not the only club interested in him after he made the decision to leave Liverpool.

“A number of clubs were interested in me, but I will not comment on it now. I don’t think it will be good for Lazio, all of that is in the past” he added
