Dalglish On £100m Spending Spree & Praises New Owners

By on August 6, 2011

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish insists you need to spend in order to challenge for silverware, but claims spending doesn’t necessary guarantee you success.

The Kop legend has spent over £100million since his arrival in January and there appears to be no end to the spending on Anfield.

The club have been heavily linked with numerous left backs from around Europe with Newcastle’s Jose Enrique favourite to join the Liverpool revolution.

“Everyone hopes all their signings will come in and make a huge impact, but we believe we have improved and enhanced the talent we already had here,” said Dalglish.

“Spending money does not guarantee you success. (But) I don’t know of any football club that has ever had success that has not spent money. So it is necessary.

“But it’s even more important to spend it wisely. We’ve acted responsibly in the transfer market and we’ve also acted responsibly and respectfully with the owners, who have been fantastically supportive during the window.

“If there is a better owner that is as supportive as John W Henry, then they have done very well for themselves because he’s fantastically supportive, a genuinely good fella.

“I never had any doubts (about Henry’s credentials), so you need to ask the people who had the doubts.”
