Brendan Rodgers is expected to keep his job as Liverpool manager next season but at least ten players can expect to be on the way out and even more could follow, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The club’s hierarchy will also look at changing the way it buys players following a summer transfer window to forget in 2014 with hardly any of Liverpool’s signings proving value for money or achieving any kind of the success expected.
The Telegraph believes Fenway Sports Group, the club’s owners, are becoming more comfortable with the idea of appointing a director of football or general manager to assist Rodgers.
This would then call in to question just what the point of the much-publicised transfer committee is.
Rodgers, club director Mike Gordon, chief executive Ian Ayre, head of performance and analysis Michael Edwards, head of recruitment Dave Fallows and chief scout Barry Hunter all form the panel.
Following signings the likes of Mario Balotelli, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert, Alberto Moreno and Lazar Markovic – who have hardly been spectacular – there has been some debate over whether this jury of the club’s hierarchy should be re-shaped or simply scrapped altogether.
But even if the committee is binned, the Telegraph says the club will still look to sign players of potential as is the desire of FSG.
However, whatever is decided on this front; the club are looking to ship out least ten players, possible more, once the window opens at the end of the season.
