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.”
