Liverpool striker Andy Carroll has described the support for his debut appearance for the club on Sunday as “unbeleiveable”.
Carroll played the last 17 minutes of Liverpool’s 3-1 victory over Manchester Utd at Anfield, the first time he’s played for the Reds since completing a £35million switch from Newcastle in January.
The 22-year-old showed brief glimpses of the attacking ariel threat he can bring to the team, which could change the whole dynamics of Liverpool’s game.
Carroll described to press after the game, “I was on the bench and itching to get on right from the kick-off really but I’ve started now and can’t wait for the next game.
“When I was running back from warming up, all the fans were shouting and screaming and so I got a little bit excited.
“I was over the moon to get on there and get back playing.
“The support was unbelievable for me. The fans have been great since I signed and even when I was warming up, they were fantastic.
“It was an incredible atmosphere, definitely one of the best I’ve ever experienced.”
After recovering from his thigh injury, Carroll will now travel with the squad to Portugal for this Thursday’s Europa League clash against Braga where he is expected to start on the bench again.
