Florent Sinama-Pongolle now has no desire to return to Liverpool having settled in Spain.
Florent Sinama-Pongolle admits he has no desire to return to Liverpool having settled superbly to life in Spain.
The young French striker, 22, is currently on loan at Recreativo de Huelva and has helped transform the Andalusian outfit into the surprise package of the Primera season to date.
He has fired nine goals in a total of 14 league starts as Recre have climbed into seventh place in La Liga, just four points behind Real Madrid who occupy the final UEFA Champions League qualifying spot in fourth.
The front-man had previously been somewhat reticent to rule out a return to Anfield, but - while acknowledging he is still under contract to The Reds - now concedes he would prefer to continue his career in Spain.
"Today I don't have any desire to go back and sweat blood and tears again in England," he told the Fifa Futbol Mundial programme on Sky Sports.
"What I have out here in Spain suits me very well and I'd like to stay whether it's at Recreativo or somewhere else."
