Doni not prepared to lose money and join Liverpool

Liverpool missed out on signing Roma keeper Alexander Doni because the player claims he would have had to take a huge pay cut to join the Reds. The two clubs reached an agreement over Doni's transfer earlier this month, but the 31-year-old turned down the offer of a move to Anfield.

"I have only received an official offer from Liverpool," Doni told Italian newspaper Il Tempo. "But I could not accept those conditions.

"I would have had my salary cut by 60 per cent.

"After signing a five-year contract extension with Roma in 2008 and having given a knee for Roma's cause, I am unwilling to give away money."
