Reds boss pleased with summer signings.

Check in to Swansea City vs Liverpool

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has expressed his delight at the work done by the club in this summer’s transfer window, according to Sky Sports.

With an eventful deadline day passing yesterday, Liverpool were pleased to get most of their last work done early in the morning, confirming the signings of defensive duo Mamadou Sakho and Tiago Ilori, as well as Chelsea winger Victor Moses on a season-long loan.

These players joined the likes of Simon Mignolet, Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto as new arrivals at Anfield this summer, and look to have put Rodgers’ side in a good position to continue their fine start to the season, which has seen them win all three of their opening Premier League games.

Although the club also seemed to miss out on some other big-name targets, such as Christian Eriksen, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Willian, the former Swansea manager said he felt very positive about the players he had managed to bring in.

“I’m obviously very pleased,” said Rodgers. “The window this summer has been very productive for us.

“We’ve certainly got more competition and as a manager you always want more, but we’re more than happy with the business we’ve done.

“We’ve added freshness to the group. What we were looking to bring in was hunger – even though Kolo Toure is 32, he’s very hungry to succeed.

“We’ve done great business over the course of the summer – and we’ll run with that until January and see where we’re at then.”

After a flawed transfer policy under previous managers saw Liverpool over-spend on the likes of Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam, the club’s fans will be pleased to see a more sensible approach in place now, with youngsters and players brought in from all around the world.
