Gerrard pleased by new arrivals
Liverpool have signed Jordan Henderson, Stewart Downing, Charlie
Adam and Alexander Doni so far this summer and are still on the
lookout for a left-back and centre-half. Gerrard, who is set to
miss the start of the new Premier League season, is happy with the
new signings and believes the extra competition can only be a good
thing. “I believe we’ve made some very good signings this summer,
with Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing and Doni all
coming in,” he told the club’s official website. “Hopefully there
will be one or two more arriving before the transfer window closes.
You always want competition for places because it’s a long season.
“Obviously it gives the manager more options and it also pushes the
players on because they know not everyone can start every game.”
