Despite the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, Liverpool look set to miss out on the Champions League football for next season. The club are currently seventh in the Premier league table, and they need to make up several points in order to finish in the top four. Rodgers arrived as a replacement for Kenny Dalglish in the summer. He made several changes to the squad by loaning out Andy Carroll and bringing in players like Daniel Sturridge. There have also been other significant signings in the form of Joe Allen. Despite this, Liverpool are yet to finish in the top four after more than four years.
Recently, Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard spoke about the importance of bringing in new players in the summer in the hope of pushing for a top four spot. Rodgers is also of the same opinion, as he is looking at a couple of players to sign in the summer. The players who have been signed by Rodgers has so far turned out to be excellent buys for the club. The likes of Daniel Sturridge and Allen have been in great form for the club this season.
Liverpool also signed the Brazilian midfielder, Coutinho, who has also been in magical form for the club this season.
“We would have liked to bring in a few more players in the summer but we didn’t, and the group were admirable with how they coped in that period because we had a lot of games. We knew we had to bring in reinforcements in January and the board worked superbly to get those players. We are hopeful that come the summer we can make more additions that will take us on to the next level. The business we did in January however was excellent and that’s a great credit to the club,” said Rodgers.
