Nathaniel Clyne: I had to leave Liverpool


Bournemouth loanee Nathaniel Clyne grew frustrated at Liverpool and felt he had to leave to revive his career after falling out of favour under manager Jurgen Klopp.

After a long absence with a back injury and the rise to prominence of Trent Alexander-Arnold, 27-year-old Clyne played only three full games for Liverpool last year.


‘It is very frustrating. Knowing you are fit and you can play but constantly not getting selected for the team is disappointing,’ said Clyne.

‘I would rather just go out and find another club who can give me the opportunities to play. That is why I am here.’

The right back’s start at Bournemouth has been complicated. Cardiff manager Neil Warnock branded Liverpool a ‘disgrace’ and accused the club of a ‘lack of class’ after Bournemouth hijacked Cardiff’s agreed loan move for Clyne.

Warnock said: ‘To see it on television when I’ve done everything right and they’ve promised he’s my player this week — for me, it’s a disgrace and just a lack of class. What I was disappointed in is having known Nathaniel — to not get a phone call from Nathaniel or from Liverpool, I thought that stank.’
