New Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson has assured the fans he will strengthen his squad in the coming weeks.
The former Fulham boss is adamant to avoid any repeat of the dressing room friction that forced Rafael Benitez to admit, midway through last season, that his players’ body language wasn’t all it might have been.
"It’s vital all the players are fighting for the same cause and it’s my job to find the right combination of players to bring success back to Liverpool," said Hodgson.
"I want Melwood to be a place where the players enjoy coming to work because of the training and the way they’re treated.
"Hopefully, over the coming weeks and months, we will make some changes to the team. It’s important to be able to bring in new players to freshen everything up and keep the others on their toes.
"But it’s not right to talk about strengths and weaknesses based on last season because the year before, with virtually the same players, they might have won the league with a bit more luck. So I will give them all a fair opportunity."
