Maxi Rodriguez thanks fans as he leaves LFC
Maxi Rodriguez has left Liverpool FC, returning to Argentina with Newell’s Old Boys.
The 31 year old midfielder had long been linked with a move away from Anfield after becoming a peripheral figure under Kenny Dalglish last season and with his family struggling to settle on Merseyside.
A popular player with supporters, he arrived from Atletico Madrid in January 2010 and made a total of 73 appearances, scoring 17 times for the Reds.
In a letter to the supporters on the official website, the midfielder wrote;
Dear Reds, I am leaving Liverpool FC today.
Before signing for LFC, I just saw the club as one of the greatest institutions in football. After my time here I can confirm that this is not just a great club but also a great family.
I have tried to give everything every day that I was wearing the LFC crest. It has been a great honour to defend this shirt during two and a half years. I am returning home with a suitcase full of great memories, good friends within the team and also within this great family that works every day in the club. Thanks a lot for your support. You can NOT imagine what a great honour it was for me when the Kop sang, ‘Maxi, Maxi Rodríguez runs down the wing for me da da da da dada…’
Hasta la vista.
Good luck Maxi.
