Money isn’t everything – Rodgers
Posted On March 19, 2014
Brendan Rodgers has fired a warning to his title rivals by telling them that money doesn’t guarantee success, according to the Mirror.
The Liverpool manager has guided his side to second place, four points behind leaders Chelsea with nine games to go giving them in best chance to clinch the title in years.
While their rest of the challengers have splashed out mega-transfer fees over the past two transfer windows, the Reds bought only cut price players last summer, and added nobody in January, and Rodgers has insisted that merely “having a plan in place” can be enough to succeed.
Nevertheless, he has told Sky Sports that the club will be in the market for new additions in the summer as they look almost certain to be involved in next season’s Champions League.
One of the latest players to be linked with a move to Anfield is PSV Eindhoven starlet Zakaria Bakkali, according to the Express.
Both Arsenal and Real Madrid have also been linked with a move for the eighteen year old, but reports in Holland are suggesting that the Reds are the front runners.
The forward has scored three goals in fifteen Eredivise appearances so far this season.
