Andy Carroll has confessed to friends he's struggling with his price-tag at Liverpool. Carroll has admitted privately that he is struggling to cope with the pressure of the £35million price tag that made him the most expensive British footballer.

One friend of Carroll told the Daily Mail: "Andy isn't unhappy at Liverpool - he thinks Kenny Dalglish has been supportive and he still thinks he can make it work.

"But one of his main problems is the fact that Liverpool paid so much for him.

"He feels that the size of the fee wasn't his fault but that he has had to deal with the consequences of it being so huge and a record."
