VORONIN LEAVES LIVERPOOL
Striker Andriy Voronin has completed his move away from Liverpool after signing a three-year contract with Dinamo Moscow.
The 30-year-old struggled to make any impact at Anfield and spent all of last season out on loan with Hertha Berlin.
Ukraine striker Voronin did not feature in manager Rafa Benitez's long-term plans and has elected to head for pastures new.
Dinamo sporting director Konstantin Sarsania told the club's official website: "The transfer of Andriy Voronin can be considered accomplished.
"The clubs reached an agreement and the player signed a contract for three years.
"We are delighted that such a strong player has joined Dinamo and we hope he can help solve the team's problems."
Voronin moved to Anfield in 2007 from Bayer Leverkusen after 12 years in Germany but scored only five goals in 27 league appearances for the Reds.
He said: "I had options for continuing a career in Germany, and several in Russia, but eventually opted for Dinamo.
"I liked the professional approach of the leaders of the Moscow club during the negotiations, and I also liked the conversation with the head coach Andrey Kobelev.
"Our views came together. Dinamo have set high goals. I'm interested. I believe the Russian league is of a very good level."
p/s:He is a good player really,real team player,but unfortunately he hadnt been given too much chance at Anfield and when he did get the chance,he wasted them all n it seems he obviously couldnt adapt with Premier League tempo(that's y he excelled in Germany).Wish him luck at Dinamo Moscow!
