Gareth Barry reveals his happiness at choosing Manchester City over Liverpool over two years ago.

Manchester City's Gareth Barry has admitted that he has no regrets over rejecting a move to Liverpool before joining his current club.

Barry was repeatedly linked with a move to Anfield in 2009 but instead decided to join the early stages of Manchester City's meteoric rise.

The 30-year-old said: "It wasn't an easy decision. I was signing for City on promises being made really and, in football, promises get made all the time.

"From the things the clubs were talking about, I felt City were on the up whereas Liverpool were maybe finding it a bit tougher than City."

Barry's side will face Liverpool in the Carling Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday evening.
