Rodgers: “Great Work” Has Been Done To Prepare Liverpool For Winter Window

Brendan Rodgers

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says that he is well prepared for the January transfer window, but will not panic if he cannot pull off the deals that he wants. Rodgers has overseen a resurgence in Liverpool this season, but has repeatedly stressed the need to add depth to his squad if they are to repeatedly challenge for silverware. However, he told the Liverpool Echo that whilst he is prepared for the window, the difficulty of bringing in his preferred targets could see him holding off on transfer business until the summer.

“I’ll be confident over the next few windows”, opened Rodgers.

“You saw last January we were fully prepared for what we needed and we got that business done early.

“We are fully prepared this time also. A lot of great work has gone in to prepare for this January window but it all boils down to the availability of the players.

“Where we’re at this January as opposed to last January is that the team has evolved and grown and developed. It’s a different team to what it was last January.

“Now there is greater demand on the types of players that we want to bring in.

“They have to be available first and foremost. If the right player is available not just for now but for the future we will look to do that.

“If not we may have to go with what we’ve got for the rest of this season and reassess in the summer.”
