Voronin doesn't want Anfield return

Andrey Voronin has insisted that he wants his future resolved by the end of the month – and has ruled out a return to Liverpool.

Voronin is currently on loan at Hertha Berlin and has enjoyed a hugely successful season after a disappointing time at Anfield, scoring a hat-trick against Energie Cottbus on Saturday to send the team to the top of the Bundesliga.

Hertha general manager Dieter Hoeness has confirmed the club are eager to sign him on a permanent deal, but admitted they may fail to raise the funds needed.

“We want to keep him,” he said. “I hope that we can find a solution.

"Of course, there is a risk that clubs with greater resources will now come in for him. The timescale is a problem.”

And Voronin has insisted he will consider other options if Hertha fail to act within the next three weeks.

"I want a decision by the end of March,” he said in Bild.

“There have been a lot of enquiries from other clubs. If it takes too long to sort something out with Hertha, I’m going to talk to other clubs.”

There had been talk about the Ukraine striker going back to Liverpool following the departure of Robbie Keane, but he does not appear keen to return.

“I’m not interested in whether they’ve noticed how I’ve been playing,” he said.

“I score goals for Hertha – not for the English side.

“I don’t give a damn what they think of me back on the island.”

He added: "Every player needs confidence. At Hertha, the coach and the players give me that.

“I’m receiving more and more passes – the guy are looking for me. It works out brilliantly.”
