Fulham

Ex-Fulham favourite Paul Konchesky opens up about his 2010 move to Liverpool

Published

on

Paul Konchesky played 122 times for Fulham before joining Liverpool in 2010.

The now 38-year-old is a memorable name of the Premier League era, having represented the likes of Charlton, Spurs, West Ham, Fulham, Liverpool and QPR amongst others, and with two England caps to his name as well.

It surprised many when Liverpool appointed Roy Hodgson as manager in the summer of 2010 and it surprised even more when he raided his former club Fulham for Konchesky.

The left-back was a solid player at Premier League level but Liverpool fans weren’t too impressed with the signing, and he joined Leicester City the following season having made 18 appearances for the Reds.

Speaking on TalkSport earlier today about his Anfield move, Konchesky said:

“I loved my time at Fulham. I could’ve said no and stayed but when a club comes calling, as in Liverpool, it was hard for me to say no.

“I knew the manager from Fulham, he went in the summer and I knew it could be on the cards when I spoke to him. When it did eventually happen it was a dream come true.”

Which club does David Stockdale play for?

Konchesky was part of the infamous Fulham side that reached the final of the 2010 Europa League. He was loved by fans and remains so, and it was hard for many of those Fulham fans to see how Liverpool fans treated him.

The verdict

Any of those involved with that season at Fulham will be forever held in folklore and Konchesky in no different. Big club moves can often be the making or breaking of footballers and it certainly topped what was a good career as a footballer for the Barking-born Konchesky.
