Sir Kenny Dalglish says the Reds were right not to spend big this summer – saying everyone at the club should, and will, be comfortable with the situation.
Owners Fenway Sports Group made it clear following the Champions League win in Madrid that money would be made available to spend, but Jurgen Klopp chose not to bring in any senior players, apart from Adrian to replace the departed Simon Mignolet.
Big names were not needed, though, with the squad already in a good place, according to Dalglish.
Speaking to the Sunday Post, via HITC, he said: “Liverpool haven’t made any big-money signings, and everyone at the football club will be comfortable about that.
“They are the Champions of Europe and have an exceptionally-strong squad. There is no point in bringing in new players unless they are an improvement on what you have. For every club, that’s not as easy as it sounds.”
Dalglish is right in that improving the team is not as easy as it sounds, especially when considering squad harmony and not disrupting the balance of the current players.
Many Reds fans would have wanted at least one to come in, with success this season probably largely depending on keeping key stars injury-free, but Klopp deserves to be trusted.
With Adam Lallana and Rhian Brewster not even on the bench on Friday night, there is some depth there. Everyone involved with transfers at the club will be more than happy with the business that was conducted – and they know best.
