Rodgers upset Liverpool squad with signings, says Man United legend
Peter Schmeichel questions Liverpool's transfer activity this summer
Peter Schmeichel believes Brendan Rodgers brought too many new faces into Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The Reds manager signed a staggering eight players as Luis Suarez left to join Barcelona, including £20m signing Dejan Lovren and controversial striker Mario Balotelli.
How are you going to balance that? For me it is not a recipe for success
However, former United goalkeeper Schmeichel reckons Rodgers should have stuck with the players that came so close to winning the title, adding a couple of new names.
Schmeichel said: “When you come that close to winning the league title for the first time in such a long time, yes Liverpool lost their best player, but why buy eight? Why upset the dressing room? You are indirectly telling the players who came that close: ‘You are not good enough.’
“When you are finally moving in the right direction you have to keep what is really good about the team. One or two more players keeps you on your toes, and you like to have a new face in, but eight new players is a huge adjustment, and the manager has to keep the new and the old players happy.
