Rodgers Won’t Buy For The Sake Of It

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said he won’t be spending Liverpool’s transfer budget just for the sake of getting in new players.

Liverpool has spent £25million on four players so far this summer rather than throwing big money at one player as in previous years.

Now Rodgers has said he will only spend the money available to him if the quality player he is looking for is there, Sky Sports report.

Speaking to LFC TV Rodgers said: "They have to be of the right quality, that's the bottom line.”

"We've got money to spend on getting that quality in but if it's not available I won't waste it for the sake of bringing a player in.

"We're really working hard to bring in the type of profile that can really help us push on."

So far Rodgers has brought in Iago Aspas, Simon Mignolet, Luis Alberto and Kolo Toure but it seems he is in no hurry to add to that list.

The debate over Suarez’ transfer goes on and Liverpool continues to be linked with players around Europe, but Rodgers is focusing on his own players, speaking about Raheem Sterling and Simon Mignolet.

"He [Sterling] has reminded me of what he was last summer, but he has got a little bit more personality now he has had a year's experience. At 18, he has looked really good."

"Simon Mignolet has been first-class. He has shown that he is one of the top young goalkeepers in European football.

"I think he will prove over the next coming years at Liverpool that he is a top goalkeeper," Rodgers added.

Liverpool hasn’t qualified for the Champions league since the 2009/10 season and faces a year out of Europe for the second time in three seasons.
