Rodgers keen to avoid another summer overhaul.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has indicated that he is keen to avoi another summer of transition at Anfield, report the Daily Star, with the Northern Irishman insisting that he does not want any senior players to leave the club at the end of the season, particularly as long-serving captain and talisman Steven Gerrard has already confirmed his intention is to move on.
The Reds were able to launch an unlikely title challenge last season, but Rodgers was forced to oversee a summer of upheaval at Anfield as star player Luis Suarez was sold to Barcelona and a number of new signings arrived at the club and had to assimilate into the squad.
This has harmed Liverpool’s form in the opening half of the 2014/15 season, with the Reds now already out of any potential title race with Manchester City and Chelsea, but their performances and results have improved in recent weeks as the team begins to gel.
Rodgers has said ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup fourth round clash with Bolton Wanderers that, Gerrard excepted, he doesn’t want to see any more of his big names move on:
“The intention is to keep everyone. That’s probably because of the mix in the group,” he said.
“Steven will obviously be a loss. Any football club would feel losing someone of that calibre and stature, as a man and a player. But you move on.”
