The Transfer Committee had the final say on transfers according to former boss, Rodgers
If targets were unavailable Brendan Rodgers would have to pick players from a list.
After ending his three-year tenure at Liverpool earlier in the season, former-Reds boss revealed his transfer conditions on ‘Goals On Sunday‘.
During his time at Anfield, Rodgers spent over £292million on signings which included the likes of Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Lazar Markovic.
However the Northern Irishmen was responsible for the Red’s highest finish in several decades after narrowly missing top spot.
Rodgers Reveals Committee
“It was a group decision. It was certainly not something I would have the sole or final say on,” he told Sky Sports‘ Goals on Sunday.
“The model of the club is slightly different. The owners have a way of working, where they want to bring in young players and see them develop.
“You look at the players who have come in and they are 24 and below, and the ones who were above that were free transfers.
“As manager, you will always be the figurehead of the club but there is a recruitment team in place who will look to bring the players in.”
“You want a player in and there’s a list of players, but if the player you want isn’t on that list, you have to take someone.
“You can’t have no players. If you want a left-back, but the one you want isn’t available, then there is a list of three or four.
“You then have to take the best in that group. It is the model.”
