Andy Carroll has hit out at Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers for not giving him an opportunity to prove himself at Anfield.

Liverpool's £35million record signing is currently on loan at West Ham and felt he had to agree to the move to London at the end of the summer transfer window in order to play regular first-team football.

"I haven't got a fair chance, I don't think, at Liverpool, and I was really told that I should move on to a team where I'll play regular football," Carroll told ESPN.

"I knew Sam [Allardyce] wanted us here and told us I'd be playing games so for me it was a no-brainer coming here.

"I want to play football all the time. Every time there's a game I want to be involved and obviously I didn't get a chance there - a new manager came in and he had what he wanted to do and I wasn't part of his plans and for me to play football this was a chance for me to do that, so that's why I made the move."

The England international also insists he would have been able to adapted to Rodgers' style of play.

"I think I could fit into any system and I believe in what I can do, and obviously he's got his beliefs and he didn't think that," Carroll said.

"But for me it was better to move on instead of waiting for my chance, which he told me might not come, and obviously coming here I have a great chance to score goals which I haven't really had many of last season."
