Werner: I don’t want to say we’ve signed ‘x or y’, but…

chairman has gone on record to promise investment in the club come January.

The American chief’s words come in the wake of watching another inspired performance from Reds superstar striker , who helped fire Liverpool to a 3-0 win on Saturday – only their third win in the league this season – scoring 2 goals versus Wigan.

Werner hailed Liverpool’s number 7, labelling him ‘beautiful‘, and further confirmed that the Uruguayan will not be sold, before insisting ’s intentions to strengthen when the transfer window reopens in January:

“We made a long-term contract with him [Suarez] in the summer and we are going to see a lot of his play at Liverpool. He’s a beautiful player to watch and as a Liverpool fan I hope I’m watching him for many years to come.

“Our intention is to strengthen but actions will speak louder than words. We are playing better and better each week. Obviously, we have made some mistakes in the past but our intention is to deliver, strengthen the squad and move forward.

“We know that January is a challenging time and I don’t want to say we’ve got x or y but hopefully the fans will be pleased with what we do accomplish.”

Werner’s comments echoed that of manager , who fully expects to see his squad strengthened in the New Year:

“We’re looking to do business in the striking department in January,” Rodgers told TalkSport.


“The reality is that there was always going to be a bit of movement this season with the club trying to regain some of their money. This season was always going to be difficult.

“We’ll look to do something in the January transfer window, though. There’s not going to be wholesale changes in terms of players coming in, that’s the reality of where the club is at.

“We’re looking to grow over the next six months, we’ll get some reinforcements in January and that will support the group who have been magnificent for me so far.

“Hopefully in the summer we can build again.”

    I dismissed his opinions because of the ridiculous comments made at 4.15 + 5.15 . not because he is american

      ‘another typical yank that knows nothing about football’ —- redrum, Nov 19th @ 4:26pm

      LOL!! You don’t even know what you’re saying. With comments and insults like this, your opinions have zero credibility!! Go and get that nappy changed. FAST!

    Clearly MASSIVE investment is needed to bridge the gap to the top .

    Average players like Gary Hooper , Ashley Williams or other Swansea players will not appease the fans

    To Scouse the Lad – Without the worldwide support of this giant legendary club “your club” would just be a local club.
    Redrum My 4:15 post was sarcasm, get it. Although I will contend it was in response to your £200 million post, you mafe it just too easy, served up a sitter as you’d say. You, in turn, jumped on the sitter with all the control of Henderson of late.
    Scouse the Lad – Wasn’t it a Brit that sold your local club down the river to the two horse theives from Texas?
    Redrum – There are fewer ruthless businessmen than the oil barons or Russian oligarchs.
    I never said we didn’t need any investment and I know FSG are at a critcal point in their crossroads, Americans or not. Their faliure to secure Dempsey was an embarrasment and I did post and call them on it. Having players come back from injury as Rodgers plans seem to be jelling will help us get stronger but more help is needed. We just don’t need to sell our childrens future to do it.
    I believe that once Whiskey nose is gone from Manure his influence will wane and then even the Lord will not be able to help them under the weight of their debt.

      every time you write you make it more obvious you understand nothing about football .
      saying rodgers plans are gelling because we beat a rubbish team at home is idiotic , clearly nothing is gelling yet .
      thinking everything will be ok when our rival manager retires is nothing short of embarrassing , 1. its sad you think a club like ours has to wait til he retires to gain success . 2. its totally naive and stupid to think we will gain success just because he retires , there are other clubs you know

      i was aware your 4.15 was sarcasm , i hate reading idiotic fans with that attitude of ‘ be careful ‘ ‘ have patience ‘ , and your lack of intelligence/knowledge of football is something typical in nearly all americans that i have come across . there is no way you can gain a understanding of the club ,the league or the game from afar

      We were not worldwide brand in the 70s &80s and we did ok then . People should support their local team , and certainly leave the running of it to locals . Sick of foreigners coming to anfield once a year , mumbling the 1st few lines of YNWA then being silent for rest of game , its ruining the atmosphere . Also foreign fans bring this passive patient attitude which we dont need .

    Sorry I offend you so. I’ve only been folowing Liverpool for almost 10 years. I only obtained my coaching license about 7 years ago. And my best friend is a Scouse. How could I possibly understand anything about YOUR club or YOUR game? Even the most casual of fans realize that your most offered plan of creating huge amounts of debt for the Club and pissing it away on the flavor of the week

      Will not win us tje league this year. Would I like that to happen, of course. But I’m smart enough to know it’s not going to happen by just throwing £200 million at tje team.

        dont be a moron ! chelsea threw about 150m and dominated the league 3 in a row , city threw 200m and won the league , utds consistent spending on players adds up to about 200m . spending equals winning ! simple as

        Njredsfan @3.13 : Now i know your a kid or very low intelligence – i never even mentioned 200 million as you seem to think !

    Neither Chelsea or City were immediate Title winners, both took at least two or three years.

      it brought immediate success , maybe not to win league but it made them immediate contenders and cup winners . I am talking to a child , yes ?

    Werner doesn’t know what he is talking about anyway , he is probably arranging the transfer of a quarter-back for our team right now

    i still hold this feeling that unless we get some two creative ttacking midfielders of the likes steven gerrard and former player (alonso) we may not get anywhere. i bet on this. if we are to play the tiki taka brand of football of the likes of barcelona then thats the way to go. but i for one believe it may take time to get to that level. one thing is for sure the youngsters are too good. hey only need time to gel and produce the much desired titles, unless they move on.

    If we could shift Cole (free), and Downing £10M in January we’d be set. 3 forwards; 2 up and comings (Abumeyang/Bony/Ince etc), 1 proven (Ba/Walcott/Sturridge).

    Then in summer £18M Carroll, Spearing £4M, Wilson £2M, Carra (retirement), plus £20M net spend budget.
