Former England striker Rickie Lambert has revealed he became disillusioned with football following his transfer to Liverpool from Southampton.
Lambert this week called time on his career following a nomadic 19-year career that witnessed the player ply his trade in all four tiers of the English game.
Lambert’s best years were spent at Southampton and it was his form on the south coast that earned him a £4million move to Anfield in the summer of 2014.
But Lambert only spent one year at his boyhood club, before equally frustrating spells followed at West Brom and then Cardiff.
However, Lambert pinpoints that move to Merseyside as the beginning of the end for him.
“If I’m honest it was like that for the last three years, after I left Southampton,” he told the Daily Mail in an interview.
“I didn’t play much at Liverpool and it was the same at West Brom and then Cardiff.
“I was getting well paid but I never started playing football for the money.
“And when I decided to go to Liverpool I sacrificed a regular first-team place and that was when I started to fall out of love with it.
“I never should have accepted being on the bench, even though Brendan Rodgers had made it clear to me I would be backup for [Luis] Suarez and [Daniel] Sturridge.”
Lambert also admits his confidence was given a reality check when moving to Anfield.
“I was never as quick or as technically good as the best players, but in my own head, when it came to actually playing, I could convince myself I was the best,” he said.
“But when I joined up with England I felt lucky to be there, and it was the same at Liverpool.
“And when I look back now I realise I lost something mentally as a player, by allowing that to happen.”

Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock has been left angered at the decision by the Icelandic FA to bring injured Aron Gunnarsson away on international duty.
The Iceland captain has appeared to have suffered a tear between his hip and thigh which ruled him out of City’s midweek victory over Leeds.
Gunnarsson has been asked to travel to Reykjavik to assess the injury which will rule him out of the Sky Bet Championship leaders’ home game against Derby on Saturday.
And Warnock has even suggested that Gunnarsson – was due to have another scan on Friday – is risking his Cardiff future by heading to Iceland.
“Gunnars will travel to Iceland because they want their own medical people to see him, which we’re not really happy about,” Warnock said at his pre-match press conference.
“It’s such an important game for them, these two, they’re really crucial, but if they play him we’ll be very, very annoyed.
“So we’ll make sure we send all the medical evidence over and if they play him we want written agreement if they see the scans that it’s got to be their responsibility to pay his wages.
“I don’t see why we should if they gamble on him.”
Warnock is aware of the importance the 28-year-old is for Iceland having won 73 caps for the national side but the City boss has already spoke with Gunnarsson about the possible outcome – if he plays.
“We have no choice in this and I’m sure they’ll try him to get to play on one leg,” Warnock said.
“But I’ve let Gunnars know about how I feel about the situation.
“He’s captain isn’t he? But if he rips it completely and his contract’s up (in the summer of 2018) it’s not going to be very good for himself is it.”
Iceland are currently second in Group A in 2018 World Cup qualifying, level with leaders Croatia and two points ahead of Turkey and Ukraine.

Kenneth Zohore scored twice and Junior Hoilett added a beauty as Cardiff swept aside Leeds 3-1 to replace them at the league summit.
Leeds had skipper Liam Cooper sent off at the end of the first half before Kemar Roofe struck a consolation for the visitors.
Warnock later pointed out the unlikely role that Sedaka had played in Cardiff’s win after watching the American in concert last week.
“I was watching him and wondering what’s he still doing it for. He’s 78 and he was fantastic,” said 68-year-old Warnock.
“The fans were brilliant there and that’s how I feel at times.
“Like Neil Sedaka said, it’s what keeps you going.”
Cardiff’s victory was all the more impressive as injuries had deprived them of midfielders Joe Ralls and Aron Gunnarsson and full-back Jazz Richards after the weekend win at Sunderland.
Richards’ absence looks like being a lengthy one with the Wales international set to miss his country’s final 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Georgia and the Republic of Ireland next month.
“It doesn’t look very good for Jazz, he could be out for two or three months,” Warnock said.
“He might need an operation because he’s done his ankle. He’s seen a surgeon and going to have an op.”
On the victory, Warnock added: “I’m proud of the whole club, the fans were fantastic, the players responded and I thought there was excitement all over the show.
“I thought the strikers looked dangerous all the time and it was great to see Ken get two taps-ins.
“I told him it would be one from a yard that gets him back on it.”
