Brendan Rodgers’ summer transfer dealings at Liverpool have come under fire from former Manchester United man Paul Scholes.
Liverpool are struggling in the league this season, where they currently sit 12th in the table having already suffered six defeats.
And according to Scholes, it is the quality of the summer signings which has been Liverpool’s downfall.
As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “The expectation at Liverpool got out of control last season and now, when the belief from the fans has been that they should take the next step, the team have been unable to do it.
“I go back to the signings once again. They weren’t good enough. A manager lives and dies by the players he brings in, especially when someone as big as Luis Suarez leaves.
“For instance, the £20m price for Dejan Lovren means that instead of looking like a smart call on a player with potential, he becomes a £20m defender with all the pressure that brings.”
