Brendan Rodgers, the Liverpool manager insisted after the defeat at the hands of Zenit Saint Petersburg that his side needs more investment and unless new players are bought in it is difficult for him to continue with the task.
Apart from Daniel Sturridge, who looks a cracking piece of business, though has only played few matches so far and it is not advisable to judge him straight away, all other signings made by him haven’t done anything spectacular.
Joe Allen, his other big signing divides opinion among the fans and pundits as well. Liverpool have done outstandingly well with their possession based football but dominance without getting results is almost equivalent of playing a negative brand of football.
Results haven’t improved under Rodgers. May be style wise, system wise it is different, that is understandable, as every manager comes with newer ideas, but where are results?
The question is, Liverpool owners gave lots of money to Kenny Dalglish last season but it wasn’t used properly. Can Liverpool owners trust Rodgers completely and give him lots of money to buy players in the summer knowing that results didn’t improve last time with investments?
