Alexander Doni says he “cannot speak the truth” about his situation at Liverpool. The Brazilian goalkeeper has not been seen at the club since the end of last season.
When Doni, 33, didn’t feature in pre-season, no details were provided by Liverpool FC. Some media reported that he was back home in Brazil for ‘personal reasons’.
It wasn’t until late October that Brendan Rodgers discussed the subject, saying that the keeper was due on Merseyside next month. The Liverpool Echo reported that Doni “had been on extended leave in his homeland due to personal problems.”
Now, Doni has finally broke his silence, after being absent for 8 months. Quotes carried by Sambafoot bizarrely have Doni blame the media for inventing stories – despite a dearth of information despite his absence.
“They [the media] talk a lot. First, I was unhappy in the reserves, then it was an ankle injury, and I have to say every hour they invent a new story.”
“I cannot speak the truth about what’s happening with me and Liverpool. We have a problem. I’m resolving the issue.”
“I’m expecting a call from my solicitor. I’ve returned to Miami now, where I was sorting out other business. I cannot say more than that.”
Doni’s contract expires in the summer. It is not clear whether he has been receiving a salary during his absence from the club.
