Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool need to sign “winners” this summer if the Reds want to build on their positive end to the season.

The Merseyside outfit impressed in the second half of the campaign after a run of results which saw the Reds lose just once in 13 Premier League outings.

In particular, Rodgers’ January signings, Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge, helped provide Liverpool with more attacking threat.

And the Northern Irishman wants to sign players of similar quality in the summer transfer window to allow the Reds to “kick on” next season.

“A lot of great learning has taken place throughout the year both on and off the field,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s website.

“Now we want to build on the positive impact of the second half of the season.

“It’s our job as a club to look to bring in the types of players who will allow us to kick on again.

“There is a lot of work going on behind the scenes in order to reinforce the group.

“In order to breed the consistency needed to give us success, we need to bring in winners – those with the winning mentality.

“Everyone has to play a part in leadership.

“You get different types of leadership – some are purely by action and inspiration, others by organisation and more verbal.

“Taking on that responsibility is something that has to come from within the group here, but we’re also looking to bring in that type of player.”
