LIVERPOOL FC chairman Tom Werner 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 Luis Suarez, 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 FSG’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 Brendan Rodgers, 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.”
