Not a wonder goal by any stretch of the imagination, but a classy finish not-the-less (shades of Torres?) from Liverpool reserves hotshot Dani Pacheco – who, by all, accounts knocks them in for fun for the Reds’ second-string.

Perhaps surprising then that, at the tender age of 19, Pacheco has already been deemed surplus to first-team requirements by Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson, who is said to be considering letting the Spanish youngster return home in January with either Malaga or Real Sociedad.

Pacheco has made a smattering of substitute appearances for Liverpool proper over the past couple of seasons, but Hodgson remains unconvinced about what he’s seen:

“He’s had moments when he’s looked good, others when not quite so, He’s working on his game. He featured in the unfortunate Northampton game.

“It was a great opportunity for those outside the first 13 or 14 to really show me, ‘You should be thinking of me’, but he didn’t take the chance.

“When will he get that chance again? Probably in one of these games in Europe – who knows? Maybe he will burst back onto the scene, but it is very difficult to do that in a reserve game.”

With half-decent strikers (however unproven) at a fair old premium at Liverpool of late, surely letting a promising starlet of Pacheco’s burgeoning potential leave so readily is bordering on insanity?

    Hodgson, don’t spoil liverpool’s future please.

  2. Mr. Chopper says:

    “Er, we don’t need him cos we’ve got Torres lol”

    Just waiting until Suso gets to 19 and he too gets treated with utter contempt and sold to Juventus for £86.

  3. James says:

    Surely Commoli (whatever he’s called) and Henry won’t let Hodgson sell off a potential future star? I though youth talent is what the ‘pool were all about these days.

  4. spectator says:

    first he exchanges dalla valle for paul konchesky (honestly, WTF) and now this. Hodgson can organise a team, but amoungst all his journeying and international football experience, he hasn’t really got much experience building a team or developing a club’s youth. he shouldn’t be allowed to make these decisions. with the right management pacheco could be a massive deal.

    I’m so thankful that Comolli has arrived. I mean he might not make uber awesome transfers like he did at spurs but he still stop Hodgson from making stupid deals like-
    1. Bringing KONCHESKY! I mean KONCHESKY!!!
    2. Loaning Insua.
    3. Bringing Poulsen, loaning Aquilani!

    Hopefully Comolli won’t let him sell pacheco. I mean he is one the best youngsters around!

    Yes, Hodgson is already insane, as we’ve seen in a lot of his choices. Selling Pacheco would just make him look even worse.
