Liverpool flop Konchesky speaks out on Anfield return, mum's Facebook post

Leicester City defender bracing himself for returning to Liverpool later this season.

eicester City defender Paul Konchesky was one of the stars as the Foxes defeated Manchester United at the weekend.

The sensational result was a welcome confidence boost for a player determined to have another crack at proving himself in the Premier League.

Konchesky was part of the Fulham team which reached the 2009 Europa League final, but after being signed for Liverpool by Roy Hodgson his career took a hit.

Unimpressive early into the unsuccessful period for the Reds, Konchesky was slated by fans, causing his own my to controversially lambast supporters on social media, making his position at the club untenable, and he was swiftly moved on as Hodgson was fired.

Speaking about the disappointing experience in an interview over the weekend, he admitted it will be tough to return to Anfield in January.

He told The Guardian: "She didn’t like what she was hearing and she was trying to stick up for me, like I think a lot of mums would stick up for their kids. But obviously when I saw it, I thought: ‘I’m in a bit of trouble here.’

“Going back to Liverpool this season will be hard for me, because that is obviously going to come up, but I’ve got to try and rise above it.

"I will go back and hold my head up high. All I can say is that I tried my hardest there, and I’m proud I played 18 times for Liverpool, probably one of the greatest clubs in the world.”

Konchesky even has a new look nowadays, sporting hair, and is refreshed after a successful promotion season in the Championship.
