Liverpool star Glen Johnson has admitted that there need to be changes made at Anfield in the summer, reports the Daily Express.
One of the first changes could be the 30-year-old leaving Merseyside. His contract finishes at the end of the season, and there is no extension on the table yet according to the Express. Other players could also be let go in order to bring in some quality to challenge for the Champions League places next time round.
The Reds’ efforts to get in to Europe’s premier club competition have petered out this campaign after a recent loss to Hull City. This comes after a summer in which they lost Luis Suarez to Barcelona and didn’t replace him properly. Injuries to fellow striker Daniel Sturridge also haven’t helped manager Brendan Rodgers to deal with the loss of the Uruguayan.
Johnson admits that there are some youngsters coming through, but new additions are a priority for the England international: “There needs to be changes. It’s the same every year and every team is going to try and do their business in the summer to try and make themselves stronger for the following the season.
“The club needs to do that too. We have some fantastic young players but we say the same every year – we always have some good young players coming through. The club has got some business to do in the summer with current players and new players and it’s just about trying to get the squad as strong as possible for the start.”
