Brendan Rodgers has looked to distance Liverpool’s transfer business with comparisons to the deals conducted by Tottenham last summer, reports Sky Sports.

Rodgers has been looking to strengthen his squad with the £75million received for the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona, and has so far completed the signings of six new players.

12 months ago Tottenham found themselves in a similar position, looking to build a squad capable of challenging for the title with the money received following Gareth Bale’s world record move to Real Madrid.

The north London club ended up falling horribly short of a title challenge, finishing sixth and sacking both Andre Villas-Boas and Tim Sherwood.

And Rodgers is keen to stress there is little point comparing the sides, as the Reds have a clear strategy behind the business they have been conducting.

“It’s a different club and different vision we have here. At Liverpool there’s a strategy behind what we are doing.

“We talked a lot with our recruitment team last season, knowing that through the summer we needed to improve the depth of our squad.

“Clearly we were not strong enough last season in terms of numbers and quality.

“We always planned to bring in a number of players, hoping we were going to be in the Champions League, so it would give us the opportunity to challenge on all fronts.

“The new players know their roles and we hope they can develop in the future as well. So far, the integration has been smooth.”
