Liverpool striker Daniel Pacheco has set his sights on a move away from Anfield.
The Spanish forward has been nominated for the 2010 Golden Boy award – a poll across European sports journalists to select the best young player in Europe – and he hopes that will be enough to attract a new club.
Speaking to Spanish newspaper Marca, he said: “I am really happy to be included in the list of finalists for the Golden Boy 2010 award.
“Now what I need to do, in order to keep growing as a player, is play. We are going to see what offers arrive and then I will decide.”
The 19-year-old is a regular for the Liverpool reserves and has been given the number 12 shirt but has played just seven minutes of Premier League football this season. (TalkSPORT)
Ask any Liverpool fan about the way in which Daniel Pacheco has been treated and they will all respond in the same fashion with a mixture of confusion and irritation. The young Spaniard has been considered a hot prospect for quite some time and yet has never been given a chance to prove himself and now he seems likely to be looking for an Anfield exit.
This whole situation of a young player not getting enough of a chance to prove himself, a player who is considered to have a great deal of potential but failing to getting first team action, is all eerily similar to what happened with Hungarian Krisztian Nemeth.
It seems that Liverpool as a club is not as prepared to throw youngsters in at the deep end as other sides, like Arsenal for instance, and perhaps with NESV reportedly looking to impose a transfer policy that serves to bring in only younger players, will help to force the club to take a chance.
When I have seen Pacheco in action I have seen signs that there is talent there, as I did with Nemeth, but how is he to grow and prove himself unless he gets a chance, and perhaps more importantly, if he can’t get a chance in a failing team then there is surely something wrong.
