Liverpool Boss Warns Season Could Get Worse

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted that the situation at the club could yet get worse before it gets better, as reported by the Daily Star.

It has been over a month since Liverpool won a game in the Premier League, with their victory against Spurs at the end of August being followed by two losses and a draw.

While Liverpool were at their fluid, attacking best against the White Hart Lane club, they’ve failed to put together performances like last last season since.

This week also saw a loss against Basel in the Champions League, and there are increasing concerns that they will fail to match the achievements of last season.

The clear difference is the loss of Luis Suarez, who was sold to Barcelona during the summer for £75 million.

Daniel Sturridge has also been ruled out with a thigh problem, but is set to make his return in the near future.

Rodgers feels like they will soon come good, but that it could yet take time.

He said: “I think that the pain is for now. It’s unfortunate.

“For us I think it was that we lost a top class player, having to bring in other players that can help us now, and obviously for the future.

“I think that once these players settle in and adapt, and they really understand how we work, then we’ll move back to where we were.

“There will be frustration, absolutely, and there’s no-one respects that more than me.

“But we have to work hard to get them settled.

“We lost that movement and speed of Sturridge, the link-up with other players, that has broken the dynamic a little.

“We just have to persevere until we get the squad back.

“In the meantime, it’s obviously been hard for the supporters and I totally understand.”
