Liverpool’s Nigerian-born midfielder, Bobby Adekanye has revealed that he is leaving the choice of his next career destination to his family and business manger, as he wants to concentrate on ending the season well.
Although Adekanye further disclosed that he already has links with Barcelona of Spain and SS Lazio of Italy, among other options, he will make the final choice only recommendations from his loved ones.
Footballlive.ng gathered that the 20-year-old Holland-born star, who insists he will not sign a new contract with Liverpool, further stated that he also has interest coming his way from Willem 11 Tilborg of Holland.
Adekanye has become disgruntled with life at Anfield, after not being given a chance to shine in the first team as well as being left at home as the team went on a pre-season tour of the USA.
After making his debut for Netherlands U20s against Mexico last week, Adekanye, who has nine appearances for Liverpool’s U23s in the English Premier League 2 this term, says he is looking forward to the summer.
One big reason why Adekanye is eager to see the season come to an end is because he has not played since November, and the lad confessed that he feels very much betrayed by the top brass at Anfield.
Adekanye disclosed: “I expected that I would get a chance at Liverpool sooner. Before I came, we talked about it.
“They said that if I had a good first season, I had a good chance of joining the first team.
“Due to injury, that did not come true. I had to undergo surgery at the start of my second season and then it is difficult to return.
“Jurgen Klopp spoke to me and gave me tips. He said ‘keep doing your thing’. But, in the end, I don’t think I appeared in his plans.
“If so, I have to look for something else. That is disappointing and it has helped me decide not to renew my contract.
“That I would sign with Lazio is not at all the case. It’s not over yet. They are one of the clubs interested, but it is not yet 100 per cent decided.
“I also heard from Barcelona. In the Netherlands, Willem II came by. There is interest from, among others, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain.
“In the summer I am going to talk about it with my family and business manager Junior Minguella, I am not worried that I will have no club.”
