Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish feels his signings paid for people not being patient with them.

Dalglish spent £60million the previous summer on the likes of Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing and Charlie Adam and says they needed more than just one season to settle at Anfield.

"We signed seven new players and for Liverpool Football Club to try and assimilate so many in one season was a huge ask for the players," he told the Mirror.

"Some of those young lads at Liverpool are going to be really good footballers, but the club had never brought seven new players in before, who would all start at the same time."
