Konchesky: A bad scouse dream?
Arguably one of the worst signings of Roy Hodgson- the former Liverpool Manager.
It is very well known that football managers tend to bring a player or two with them when they leave one club for another. For this matter, Liverpool fans would have forgiven Roy Hodgson if he had brought anyone but Konchesky in last summer.
Paul Konchesky is one of the most experienced left backs in Premier League but he, like Roy Hodgson, was at a wrong club.
The hoof-ball mastermind knows everything Roy Hodgson taught him during his Fulham years and found himself out of favour when King Kenny was established as Liverpool manager in January.
He was accused of being too mediocre and his performances didn't help rectify his cause either.
The worse part of the whole failure was that he was brought in to fulfill the most dreadful of positions in Liverpool team. The left back position.
Many people would have received a "Doctorate" degree by submitting their thesis on " Liverpool must strengthen Left back (and Left midfield) ASAP with QUALITY player."
If that was not enough, the Englishman's mother made sure her son would receive enough wrath from Liverpool fans by suggesting Liverpool fans are "Scouse Scum" after their defeat at Stoke City.
Kenny Dalglish clearly knew the ex-Fulham left back was not up to the task and sent him on loan to Nottingham Forest during the January transfer window and appointed Glen Johnson on the role.
Out of everyone's surprise, Johnson has been giving his best performances on the totally opposite side of his normal playing position.
The 29-year-old Konchesky will definitely be out of Anfield in summer. One of the possible destinations is back at Craven Cottage where Mark Hughes seems to be interested in the left back.
1. Taye Taiwo:
The 25-year-old Nigerian football player currently plays at Olympique de Marseille at left back position.
This month, Taiwo clearly made his intentions to move away from OM club clear when he said he will not be signing the contract extension next season.
World football seems to be devoid of enough quality left backs these days. Taiwo's physical presence makes him a distinguish left back.
Pace, power and high crossing ability come with Taiwo, whose contract expires at the end of the season making him free agent.
It seems like the Nigerian has already picked his club for his free transfer in summer. He was quoted saying his agent alongside him are in advanced talks with a club in one of the top three leagues in the world.
Could this club be Liverpool? Only time will tell.
2. Fabio Coentrao:
Perhaps the best, or one of the best, left backs in world football. The Benfica left wing back is considered as one of the highest priced left back and has been linked with Man Utd and Real Madrid.
The 22-year-old Portuguese can also play as a left winger but primarily he is employed at left back position.
Rumours were suggesting he reportedly said "I love Liverpool" which might suggest his interest in the Anfield club.
Coentrao also said that he would be interested in being coached by the special one, Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.
Since Patrice Evra signed a new four-year deal, Man Utd most likely will not be chasing the Portuguese. That leaves Real Madrid as the major threat to Liverpool for Coentrao's signature.
Coentrao will cost about £25 million should FSG, along with Damien Comolli, decide to finally put an end to the troublesome left back headache at the club.
