Manchester United legend Gary Neville has admitted that he believes Liverpool cannot complete in the market against their title rivals, according to reports from the Daily Star.
He believes that the Reds have lost their ability to attract the best players, spending huge amounts of money on new additions, but is yet to create the perfect team.
Manager Brendan Rodgers is now under heavy pressure to perform following his summer spree, but has only registered two wins, two draws, and two loses from his previous six matches.
Neville stated that although the Anfield club managed to bring in a number of new faces every year, they are still unable to complete with United, Chelsea, and Manchester City.
“They can’t compete in the transfer market with United, Chelsea, City and that’s been proven now over a period of the last five, six, seven, eight years,” he said.
“They’ve spent money, but they can’t get the real best players to Merseyside.
Rodgers side are now sitting in 13th place and has failed to reach the level of football which saw them finish second two seasons ago.
The club will now host Carlisle in the Capital One Cup tomorrow before facing Aston Villa at home on Saturday.
