Mainz 05 sporting director Rouven Schroder has left the ball in Liverpool’s court over whether to keep Taiwo Awoniyi at the German club for the rest of the season.
The Nigerian striker has fallen down the pecking order at Mainz this season and has only featured six times in the Bundesliga.
There have been suggestions that Liverpool are considering cutting short Awoniyi’s loan stint, but so far no decision has been made on whether to leave the forward at Mainz for the rest of the season.
The Reds still have an opportunity to loan him out to another club as the transfer window is still open in countries such as Austria, the Czech Republic, Russia and the USA.

Schroder insists that it is up to the Liverpool hierarchy on whether they want Awoniyi to continue at Mainz.
“There were and there are opportunities, but unfortunately, Liverpool and their management have to make the final decision. Unfortunately, he has not used his chances.
“Now, of course, he is giving his everything, with the competition ahead of him at the moment,” Schroder told Kicker.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
