Baros should take the hint

Liverpool striker Milan Baros should be actively pursuing another club. Gerard Houllier would be glad to have him at Lyon but Liverpool didn’t take their chance to sell.

Maybe money or coach Rafael Benitez was worried that he wouldn’t get another striker to replace him. Maybe he also worried about the lineup considering all the Liverpool injuries last year.

Liverpool purchased Peter Crouch from Southampton and Liverpool have told Baros they don’t want him yet the optimist insists he wants to stay at the club. Why? I thought the objective as a professional footballer was to play (and do well). When you are a defender and don’t score that’s one thing, but a striker ?

Instead of getting his career on track Baros prefers to ignore an imminent sale:

"If he says he does not need me, then we will start solving the problem, but nothing is happening now and I am not letting it play on my mind." -Baros

What team keeps a player out of Champions League matches other than to assure his marketability to potential suitors?

Liverpool need to sell Milan Baros and Milan Baros needs to get himself and his manager hopping in search of a new club.

maybe they don't actually want to sell him, but get him to sign a contract with a lower salary. afaik, he only has one year left on his contract... he is one of the last season's most efficient striker in the epl. it would be a shame to lose him.

For the Czech team yes, but for the REDS he's not that efficient. He can't seem to fit in with the way Liverpool play.

Furthermore, he prefers to talk about scoring goals rather then let his goals do the talking. And Benitez knows that.

From what I see, he's going to do a bosman, that's why he said he was in no hurry to go anywhere. I think he frustrates Benitez for not wanting to go. You won't see him playing in the CL that's for sure.

Personally, I think he should go. His heart is no longer with Liverpool.

I think for now Benitez must persist with him as he has been sucessful playing off Koller for the Czech, and he might click in a similar role playing off Crouch.
