Remember the former Liverpool star in the 2011 – 2013 era, Andy Carroll? Now, he chose to join the Championship team, Reading, and only signed a contract duration of TWO MONTHS!
Crazybola.com – Andy Carroll, who is also a former England striker, has been on a free transfer since his second season at his boyhood club, Newcastle United, ended last summer.
The 32-year-old is desperate to play football again and has the opportunity to return to the pitch with Championship side Reading, who tied him up on a deal that runs until mid-January 2022.
“This is a deal that we have been working on for some time and believe it is the right transfer for the player and the club,” said Reading manager Veljko Paunovic.
“Andy is looking for a new challenge in his career in football, and we need a player who has the quality and experience he has,” Paunovic added. The Sun.
“It will be a great game and I can’t wait to work with Andy over the next two months,” said the former Serbia international.
At a young age, the former Liverpool star managed to keep his condition fit. But the team dubbed The Royals claim their new signing ‘will now sharpen his fitness’.
As a result, it remains to be seen whether Carroll will be involved in Reading’s home game against Nottingham Forest this weekend.
“With the lengthy injuries to two of our key players, our strength in attack has been understandably limited this season. So we are very happy that Andy agreed to join us,” said Reading’s chief executive, Dayong Pang.
“With his goalscoring prowess, I’m sure he will offer something different to our first squad ahead of this busy period in the Championship,” added Pang praising the former Liverpool man, who has scored six goals in 44 appearances for the Reds.
Andy Carroll’s boyhood club, Newcastle United, commented on the player’s arrival at Reading and wished the tall striker well.
Carroll’s career immediately skyrocketed after successfully breaking through to the main squad from the Newcastle academy team in 2006, he was immediately hooked by the Reds in a transfer that was then record-breaking in English football.
Despite helping Liverpool win the League Cup title in his first season at Anfield, Carroll was never really fit, until finally he was loaned to West Ham in August 2012. He was then made permanent by the Hammers after one season with them, and as soon as possible became a hero in the East London team.
At that time, Carroll admitted that he really enjoyed the success of his career in the world of football with West Ham. However, he only scored 34 goals and 17 assists in the 142 games he played with the Hammers, and contributed a low amount of goals per game, until he finally returned to Newcastle on loan.
