The Reds currently look on course to return to Europe’s top club competition for the first time since 2009, which has led to talk that the financial advantages bestowed by the competition may help to bring in big name players.
Liverpool have impressed this season, but with no European football to speak of at Anfield Rodgers has been able to rely on a relatively small pool of players to get his side through their domestic responsibilities.
Gossip columns have been alight with rumours surrounding possible targets of the course of the past few weeks, with the Merseysiders being linked with top names on an almost daily basis.
However, Rodgers says that spending money doesn’t guarantee success, and that Liverpool will be adopting a sensible approach in the transfer market:
“Teams spend a billion quid and it does not guarantee anything,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.
“We will be in the market for good and top players but there is more to it than that.”
“The money is great and we will be in the market to compete but what is important is still having a vision of how you want the club to progress.
“It is about coaching and man management and dealing with people, having a great staff, finding a cause for the players to fight for.
“All of that comes into it and that is something we have done in the period I have been here.”
