Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool’s summer transfer business is not finished yet, with the boss looking to fine tune his squad before the 2014-15 campaign kicks off, reports Liverpoolfc.com.
Speaking after the Reds beat Manchester City 3-1 on penalties following a 2-2 draw in the Yankees Stadium in New York, Rodgers revealed he is still on the lookout for players to strengthen his squad – despite signing six new players already this summer.
He said: “We still have some positions that we want to fill within the squad so that by the end of August we have a strong group of players to go forward with. We’ve still got some business to do.”
The boss also revealed he is not ruling out players stepping up who had perhaps previously not been considered, one of those possibly being Sebastian Coates.
The Uruguayan centre back has been given a chance to stake a claim during pre-season, and has produced some impressive performances.
“Every player has an opportunity,” Rodgers said. “Seba was out for a lot of last season. He’s done well in pre-season, he has been very composed on the ball and he passes it well. He has done well.”
Having now completed five pre season matches, the Northern Irishman is confident his squad is moulding together nicely ahead of the big kick off in just over a fortnights time.
