Club captain in the dark over young new stars.
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has claimed that though he hopes Brendan Rodgers’ new signings will be able to help the club reach the top four again, he doesn’t know a whole lot about them, the Daily Mail reports.
The manager has already done deals for Manchester City defender Kolo Toure, Sevilla midfielder Luis Alberto, Celta Vigo striker Iago Aspas and Sunderland goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, and has designs on bringing in more over the summer.
However, Gerrard has admitted that he knows very little about the club’s new young Spanish signings.
“I know very little about them, but I have a lot belief and confidence in Brendan and the scouting department that they are going to make the right decisions and I have seen bits and bobs of the new signings we have made,” Gerrard told LFC TV.
“I am really looking forward to getting back to work next week and seeing what the new players have got to offer and see if they can help strengthen our squad to put in a better fight for a top-four finish.
“It’s always important to get faces in as soon as possible; they can get a full pre-season under their belt, get to know the lads and how the manager wants to play.
“There are (also) some exciting names in there so everyone is excited.”
