Former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli told talkSPORT why he feels his old side have got their transfer business wrong this summer.
Liverpool have made a number of key signings in the transfer market so far this summer, with Comolli suggesting that means a higher number of players who have to settle down into the first team and the pressure attached to the club.
He claims that by the time all of Liverpool’s new players find their feet and hit their best form, it may be the case that the club are already chasing their main Premier League rivals above them.
“By the time everyone settles into the team, and the players coming from abroad get used to the Premier League they might be well behind fourth place,” he told talkSPORT.
“It is a huge risk. If you look at the stability of City, Chelsea, Arsenal throughout the years – the proof is in the pudding.”
Have Liverpool got their signings wrong?
Only time will tell if Brendan Rodgers has made the right calls in terms of the players he’s brought into the club, but fans would arguably have been much more annoyed had he not done anything to improve his squad.
Rodgers had to make some big signings because the exits of Steven Gerrard and Raheem Sterling left gaping great holes in key areas of the team.
It was also evident at times last season that there was a real lack of attacking vibrancy and punch in the team, when Daniel Sturridge was unavailable through injury.
All Rodgers has done is improve his squad options and the fans need to trust him to prove Comolli wrong and get the most out of his new players quickly.
