Liverpool boss Roy Hodgson admits he's anxiously waiting for the club to change hands. For Hodgson, who took over from Rafael Benitez in July and was then forced to sell Javier Mascherano to Barcelona, his main aim has been to avoid having to rebuild the playing squad completely.
Hodgson told the LMA's magazine The Manager: "The club is up for sale and nobody knows what direction it will take if and when new owners are found.
"A few years ago when the situation was far more stable, the money to buy new players was available.
"I hope the situation will change when the club is eventually sold and owners who are prepared to invest in the club come in.
"When that situation arises I'm pretty sure that it won't be difficult for us to start achieving things again but at the moment the task is really to hang on to the players we've got and make certain we don't have a situation where we have got a total rebuilding process."
