Charlie Adam has made an interesting revelation about West Ham ace Andy Carroll by stating that he hates “inswinging corners”.
Stoke City midfielder Adam revealed that the target man prefers the ball to be hung up in the air when corners are being taken.
Former Scotland international Adam is famous for the great technical ability he holds during dead piece situations, with former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson once saying that his corners are worth “£10million”.
Furthermore, Carroll is equally as dangerous during set piece situations with the big striker using his strong frame to cause havoc in the penalty area.
BBC Sports pundit Adam was talking about taking corners as he revealed what type of deliveries Carroll liked and did not like
“I played with Andy Carroll and he hated inswinging corners,” Adam told the Monday Night Club on BBC Radio Five Live. “He hated them. He wants them just hung up so he can just go and run because the majority of the time he will win the ball.”
Both Adam and Carroll played with each other during their time at Merseyside side giants Liverpool when Anfield legend Kenny Dalglish brought them to the club.
They have since gone their separate ways with Adam now playing for ninth-placed Stoke and Carroll sitting in 12th place with his London-based side.
During the course of the season, Carroll has played 15 Premier League games for the club as injuries have once again caused problems for the former Newcastle man.
Nonetheless, he has found the back of the net on six occasions during those matches and he will be looking to get on the scoresheet at Hull on Saturday afternoon.
In other West Ham news, a defeat to Hull could see the Hammers wield the axe.
