Crouch keen on Reds talks

07 May 2008 09:22
England striker Peter Crouch has admitted that he is undecided about whether to remain with Liverpool next season, having struggled to make his mark this term. The 27-year-old has made just 21 starts in all competitions this season, with Reds manager Rafa Benitez having brought in Fernando Torres last summer to be his number one striker. Crouch told the Daily Mirror: "When all is said and done, I don't think I can have another season like this year where I've started nine Premier League games. "Out of a 38-game league season, nine games is not the amount you want to be playing. "I'll have to speak to the manager and see what his plans are. I need to see him and sort things out. "I have to find out what he wants from me next season and whether or not I can continue with that. In some ways, I want to feel wanted. "So I'd like to speak to the manager and the club before I commit to anything and know whether or not I'll be here next year." Crouch joined Liverpool for £7million from Southampton in the summer of 2005 and has scored 42 goals in 134 appearances for the Anfield club.
