Mark Gonzalez Axed From LiverpooL??

Mark Gonzalez admits he could be leaving Liverpool either permanently or on loan, after the Champions League Final.

The 22-year-old Chile international has struggled to come to terms with the Premiership after his arrival last summer from a loan spell at Real Sociedad caused by a year-long battle for a work permit.

It is believed Real Betis and several other Spanish clubs are interested in Gonzalez, with boss Rafael Benitez considering the winger's future.

Gonzalez said: "I have a three-year contract but you never know what might happen.

"This is football and if I have to go somewhere else then I will have to deal with that, but at the moment I'm here and I'm very focused for the final and what happens in the future will come.

"If I have to go then I will go, but I will arrive there with confidence because I have been at Liverpool and I must have been there for something.

But he added: "I would like to stay at Liverpool next season and beyond. But it has not been the best year for me and I know I can do more."
