Rodgers’ transfer market weakness exposed?
Liverpool have no doubt made great strides under Brendan Rodgers in recent years, but his work in the transfer market looks incredibly poor based on this evidence.
The Reds boss may have done brilliantly to improve players like Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and Jordan Henderson, but almost every one of his purchases has gone down as a failure…
Fabio Borini – With just two goals for Liverpool, the Italian forward has proven a dreadful signing and one who will surely leave before long. MISS.
Joe Allen – Dubbed the ‘Welsh Xavi’ when he joined, Joe Allen has looked ineffective for much of his Reds career so far. MISS.
Oussama Assaidi – Just four Premier League appearances for Liverpool, the Moroccan winger has hardly set the world alight in two loan spells at Stoke City either. MISS.
Nuri Sahin – A short-lived loan from Real Madrid resulted in him spending just six months at the club, contributing basically nothing. MISS.
