Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, fresh from signing a new four year deal, has been told by the board that he should spend “whatever it takes” to ensure that next season’s return of Champions’ League football is not a one off.
Although the club missed winning the title by a narrow margin, both Rodgers and the club’s owners are adamant that the main measure of success during the course of Rodgers’ new four-year contract will be a continued presence in European football’s elite competition. And Rodgers has been told he has up to £100 million to ensure it happens.
A source close to the club said: “Of course we want to win (the league) but it’s Europe that is the game changer in terms of finance and profile. Top players want Champions League nights, it’s as simple as that.”
Rodgers has already drawn up an extensive list of targets this summer, including Man City’s Micah Richards and Southampton’s Adam Lalanna.
