Swansea midfielder Shelvey holds no Liverpool grudge

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey wants to maintain positive ties with Liverpool.

Shelvey has admitted frustration with his treatment while at Anfield.

He told the Daily Mail: "Brendan (Rodgers) called me and apologised that he couldn't give me enough game time, but he didn't need to apologise. He's the Liverpool manager.

"Brendan told me I could stay there and see what happened. It really was my choice. I wasn't pushed.

"But I wanted to play football. I would hate to be one of those sitting on my money. It is in my character, the way I was brought up. Even Brendan said, 'You're not one of these squad players happy to stand around'."
