Former Liverpool manager Roy Evans believes that if with the spending Liverpool have done this summer coupled with the additions of Suarez and Carroll in January, Liverpool are still not good enough to break into the Top 4 this coming season and clinch a Champions League place for next season.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Evans said: “When you’re at Liverpool you always expect silverware, that’s the name of the game and that’s what comes with the job.
“But I don’t think it’s going to be as easy as everybody thinks.
“Kenny has done a fantastic job and took them to a reasonable place last season. But in the last game of the season against Tottenham you saw we were short of a little bit of class against the better teams and it’s going to be tough.
“Everyone expects Kenny to turn it around quickly but I think it’s going to take a little bit more time than the fans would like, but that’s the way it is.
“We’re a fair bit behind the top four of five clubs.”
