Liverpool decision was tough but Bolton move has worked out says Spearing

Jay Spearing admits it was a very tricky decision to permanently leave Liverpool in the summer.

Jay Spearing admits it was a very tricky decision to permanently leave Liverpool in the summer.

The 24-year old came up through the ranks at Anfield but chose to depart for Bolton after a successful loan spell at the Reebok Stadium last season.

Spearing said it was tough to leave a place he had spent most of his life but feels vindicated with how things are going at Bolton under Dougie Freedman.

"At any moment in my career where I had to leave Liverpool, it was a massive decision for me and it's something I didn't take lightly," he said.

"I had to have a good think about it and had to make sure it was right for myself and my family. And, in the end, fingers crossed, it has turned out to be a great move for myself and I've loved every single minute of it.

"The year before I had had a great loan season and Dougie came in and put his point across about how he wanted to play and how he wanted me to play.

"When it then went into the summer I had a great conversation with Brendan (Rodgers), sort of sorted everything out, and it was time for me as a footballer to go and get regular first-team football.

"I got a phone call from Dougie and my first port of call was to try and get back to Bolton and I'm very, very proud to be wearing the shirt and leading the lads out week in, week out."
