Shelvey, then 20 years old, was enjoying a lot of minutes in the Liverpool first team.


The 27-year-old, who spoke with the Chronicle, admitted that he would not make the same decision if he could turn back the clock.

“I probably shouldn’t have left Liverpool,” he said.

“I had the option to stay but I felt I had to go away as I was at that age where I wanted to play football matches.

“You’d get a game one week, big players would come back and you’d be out of the team next week. I came away from Liverpool and kinda had regrets.”
