Liverpool Boss Unconcerned With Club Debt
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that off the field debt will not prevent him from buying the players that he wants to in the summer.
The Merseyside club released their annual accounts earlier this week and they showed that the overall debt has increased from £65.4million to a whopping £87.2million in the space of 12 months.
Big money transfers and wages were handed out like sweets in recent seasons before Rodgers arrived in the North West and so the Northern Irishman has had to cut back on spending in any ways possible.
Andy Carroll, Joe Cole, Charlie Adam, Dirk Kuyt, Craig Bellamy, Alberto Aquilani and Maxi Rodriguez have all been removed from the wage bill amongst others and new signings have had to be long term targets rather than snap decisions.
Rodgers has reiterated that his summer plans are not altered by the clubs rising debt and claims the club are moving forward financially.
“If you look where the club was at four years ago and where it is now it is a different place,” Rodgers told talkSPORT.
“Of course there is still debt there but I think next year’s results will show further improvement on that.
“In terms of me building the squad I’ve already got the assurances it won’t affect anything.”
