Liverpool: These fans want Bobby Duncan to be sold

Liverpool striker Bobby Duncan has been at the centre of a public spat this week involving his club and his agent Saif Rubie.

According to Sky Sports, the 18-year-old striker wants to leave the Anfield club, but the Champions League winners have rejected loan offers from Nordsjaelland and Fiorentina, the latter reportedly being Duncan’s preferred destination.

Yesterday, The Guardian reported that Rubie had released a public statement in which he accused Liverpool of “mentally bullying” his client, who was not involved in the Reds’ under-23 side’s game against Southampton on Monday.

Rubie said: “The real reason Bobby missed the under-23 game [against Southampton] on Monday is because he has suffered some deep mental health issues with all the stress the club has put him under.” [via The Guardian]

In response, Liverpool released a statement in which the club said it was “aware of and disappointed by the unattributed comments and unfounded allegations that have been made in the media regarding one of our players.” [via Sky Sports]

In the wake of these events, Liverpool-focused Twitter channel @AnfieldEdition posted a poll to its followers to get their views on whether the club should keep, loan or sell Duncan, who featured for the Reds in pre-season but has never played a competitive game for the first team.

These Reds fans on Twitter were adamant that the player should be sold:
