Rodgers' signings coming under question after Liverpool dip

Brendan Rodgers’ role in Liverpool’s transfer activity is being questioned by the Premier League club, the Daily Telegraph has reported, after the manager claimed his squad lacked depth despite a summer outlay of more than £40m.

Rodgers watched on as the Reds slipped to a 3-1 defeat against newly-promoted Hull City and revealed after the match that he was concerned with a lack of alternatives in the absence of Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho, who were both carrying injuries. The Telegraph claims, however, that the manager’s comments have led to questions being raised at Anfield over the worth of some of the signings made.


As well as spending £43m on transfer fees ahead of the 2013-14 season, the newspaper notes that Liverpool also spent £9.4m on agents’ fees, the fourth-highest total of Premier League clubs. Rodgers added eight players to his squad over the summer but only goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, bought from Sunderland, has become one of Rodgers’ first choice players.


Rodgers does not have sole responsibility for transfers at the Merseyside club, however. Instead he forms part of a committee that also includes head of recruitment Dave Fallows, chief scout Barry Hunter, analyst Michael Edwards and managing director Ian Ayre. The transfer committee was introduced after a number of expensively-purchased players failed to impress.


Liverpool’s current record signing remains striker Andy Carroll, who was bought from Newcastle in January 2011. Carroll was allowed to leave Liverpool this summer, joining West Ham on a permanent deal, having spent last season on loan at Upton Park.
