Dalglish: Liverpool owners to continue rebuilding in summer

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish says owners Fenway Sports Group will continue to splash the cash in the summer as they carry on the rebuilding job at Anfield. FSG broke the club's transfer record with the £35million purchase of Newcastle striker Andy Carroll, having already secured a £22.8million deal to bring in Ajax forward Luis Suarez.

The £50million sale of Fernando Torres and the £6million brought in by Ryan Babel's transfer to Hoffenheim means the net spend in January was only £1.8million.

Despite this outlay, Dalglish believes there will further strengthening in the close season.

"The owners have been fantastically supportive during this window, which was busy but I think very beneficial to the football club," said the Scot.

"In fact they may be slightly disappointed they didn't get someone else.

"Anyone who had any doubts about hunger or anybody taking this club forward, they're gone now. In the summer we'll be looking forward to trying to enhance what we've got."
