Rodgers Talks ‘Marquee’ Signings This Summer

Brendan Rodgers has said he is confident Liverpool’s owners will provide the necessary funds to bring in top class players at Anfield this summer.

The Reds suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat by Hull City on Tuesday night, leaving their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Uefa Champions League in tatters.

Fifth-placed Liverpool now trail fourth-placed Manchester United by seven points with four games left in the season.

The northern Irish boss admitted that his current crop was not good enough to claim a top four finish.

“You can’t hide the fact we’ve lost over 50 goals,” Rodgers said in his post-game briefing on Tuesday night.

“Even with those players we weren’t tipped to get in the top four and we haven’t got those players now. We have to work with what we’ve got.

“Now we have to look to improve the squad and it’s always great if you can get marquee players to come in and help you. The owners will support that.

“Everyday you come into work a Liverpool you are working for your future.”

Rodgers, yet, was not going to shy away from the fact he has some rebuilding work to do this summer.

“I need to build a team that can get through the rough waters as well,” he continued. “We need a team that can get through the smooth and the rough.

“That will be my challenge- to rebuild a group that can get through the rough waters.”

Liverpool host Queens Park Rangers this weekend and then take on leaders Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Stoke City in their remaining matches of the campaign.
