Pundit: This has held Liverpool back in the transfer market

ROBBIE SAVAGE has defended Liverpool’s transfer activity.

The Reds failed to make any new signings during the January window.

And that lack of action coincided with a four-game winless run in the Premier League.

One Liverpool supporter vented their fury during a Daily Mirror web chat.

But Savage reckons the Anfield faithful have a lot to thank Fenway Sports Group for.

And he says there are a number of valid reasons why big-money buys have not been on the agenda.

Savage said: “A bit harsh, mate – since John W. Henry’s takeover at Anfield went through, the club has won the League Cup and reached the FA Cup final in the same season under Kenny Dalglish, came agonisingly close to the title under Brendan Rodgers two years later and Jurgen Klopp took them to two finals last season.

“And you will only see marquee signings – the proven quality, as you put it – once Liverpool are back in the top four and can offer Champions League football to prospective new recruits.

“As is stands, in the transfer market they are still more attractive than, say, Leicester. If you are looking to move, one-season wonders can’t beat half a century of history.

“Also don’t forget that Henry has just built a colossal new stand at Anfield. All those bricks and girders don’t come cheap.”
