Andriy Voronin wants Hertha Berlin to decide on his future by the end of March after claiming he ‘could not care less’ about whether Liverpool are interested in him returning to Anfield.
The Ukrainian striker is on a season-long loan at Hertha and has previously stated he would be keen to stay with Hertha, but is keen for the club to make a swift decision.
“I want to have a decision by the end of March at the latest,” Voronin told Bild.
“There are plenty of offers from other clubs and, if it takes too long to talk with Hertha, I will be heading into talks with other clubs.
“Every player needs faith, at Hertha I feel that the players and manager are putting trust in me.”
He added: “I could not care less about the idea that Liverpool know what I am doing for Hertha. I am scoring goals for Hertha, not for them.
“I really do not give a damn about the way they are thinking about me.”
Hertha’s general manager Dieter Hoeness confirmed the club are hoping to agree a deal which will keep Voronin at the club.
Hoeness said: “Andriy is in brilliant form actually, we really want to keep him at our club.
“I am hopeful we will be able to find a solution. It’s a natural fact that he is getting more and more of the spotlight from bigger clubs with more money, and time really is a factor.
“We will do everything we can, but we will not rush into any financial risks.”
