Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he will be having cash to spend in the coming transfer window. Liverpool have once again failed to qualify for the Champions League group stages, which has the capability to provide around £ 30 million in revenue. Since arriving at the club in the summer, Rogers has spent a significant amount of money on several players like Joe Allen and Daniel Sturridge. However, the club has made just an improvement of one position in the league over last season. Liverpool finished eighth in the league last season, while they are currently seven this time around.
Daniel Sturridge was signed for around £ 12 million, while Allen is thought to have cost the club around £ 15 million. Despite spending such vast sums of money, the club will once again give him the cash in the summer according to Rogers. A few weeks ago, he spoke about the importance of spending in order to bring in quality players. Rodgers dismissed the notion that players will not be ready to arrive to Liverpool due to the absence of Champions League football. Rodgers has spent more than £ 40 million since becoming the Liverpool manager.
“The players have given everything this season. We are where we are and for us to improve we need quality – and that will take investment. I believe so, in the areas that we want to improve, and that is going to be very important for us,” said Rodgers. Liverpool were last seen in the Champions League back in the 2009 season. The absence of playing in this Premier European competition has hurt Liverpool over the last few years as they have been unable to compete with the likes of top British clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, and Manchester City in the transfer market.
