Kenny Dalglish’s transfer pledge

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish has maintained that he will spend the club owner’s money sensibly and not break the bank chasing transfer targets.

The Merseyside club have had a busy summer so far, with the additions of Jordan Henderson and Charlie Adam expected to be complemented by Roma goalkeeper Doni in the near future. Despite this, the Scotsman has told Anfield fans not to expect the side to land all the players they are linked with in the transfer window.

“We won’t get everyone we are after this summer but other clubs won’t always get who they have enquired about,” the 60-year-old told Sky Sports.

“That’s just the way it is. We’ve done some business already and we’ll continue to do what we are doing in a responsible manner. The owners know what they are doing and we have had great support from them. They know not to bankrupt the club and are running Liverpool in the right way.

“John (Henry) and Tom (Werner) will give us whatever they can afford. We have to use that responsibly,” he concluded.

The Reds are hot on the heels of Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing, but are believed to have been put off by the Birmingham outfit’s £20 million valuation of the England international.
