Reds boss wants the club to bankroll the signing of more quality players.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admits they must adopt Tottenham’s spending mentality to remain competitive in the Premier League.
Rodgers made five permanent signings this summer – Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas, Thiago Illori, Simon Mignolet, and Mamadou Sakho – while bringing Aly Cisskho and Victor Moses to Anfield on loan and Kolo Toure on a free transfer to significantly strengthen his squad.
But the 40-year-old won’t allow the Reds to stand still and admire their current position at the top of the table, instead urging the club to invest in more signings and follow Spurs’ example after they broke their transfer record on three separate occasions.
“We still need to make improvements. Tottenham have spent £100m to try and get in the top four. It will take another few windows to get that quality in the group,” he explained to Metro.
“We can be better. We have shown in stages the quality we can have with the passion, resilience and desire. We just need to keep getting results. It is important to maintain that and we have to be vigilant. We need to keep the feel-good factor going.”
Liverpool could welcome back Daniel Sturridge for Monday’s trip to Swansea after a thigh injury ruled him out of England’s World Cup qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine.
