Striker set for Anfield return

Andriy Voronin has confirmed that he will not be staying at Hertha Berlin next season. The Ukraine international joined the German outfit on a season-long loan from Liverpool last summer. Having struggled to adapt to life in England, the former Bayer Leverkusen forward rediscovered his goalscoring touch once back in the familiar surroundings of the Bundesliga. He found the target on 11 occasions for Hertha as they challenged for a UEFA Champions League spot. Their efforts ultimately proved to be in vain, as they finished fourth, and Voronin was informed that he would not be required in the 2009/10 campaign. "(The match against Karlsruhe on Saturday) was my last match as a Hertha Berlin player," Voronin told Die Welt. "I want to wish the club and their fans all the best in the future."
