The Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has ruled out the possibility of signing any new players in the January transfer window in order to improve the club’s ailing league form. It has been a very difficult season for Liverpool under the former Swansea manager Rodgers, who has not been able to improve the club any better. In fact, they have regressed under the guidance of the former Chelsea assistant manager. One of the main concerns for Liverpool this season has been the lack of firing cover to the Uruguay striker Luis Suarez. They have brought in only the Roma striker Fabio Borini during the summer transfer window.
There have been suggestions that the club will be dipping into the January transfer window in order to improve the league position of the club. Following the recent 2-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham, the club has moved to the fourth position in the table, which is a far cry from the days when they used to qualify for the Champions League. However, Rodgers has said that the club are looking towards balancing the books this season. As a result, they will not be making any significant purchases in the January transfer window. One of the main areas to strengthen at Liverpool will be the striker’s position.
“I am not so sure it will be in January to be honest. This year the club wanted to balance the books and see where it was at. There was a big investment in the club and obviously a lot of players went out in the summer and a few came in. We will look to do some business in January to help and support the players here, but that is where we are at as a football club,” said Brendan Rodgers after the Southampton match.
