Barnes: Reds have to get strategy right

Published Add your comment

Former winger John Barnes believes if Liverpool's owners do not put in place the right long-term plan the club could be waiting another 20 years to challenge for the Premier League title.

Principal owner John Henry and Tom Werner head Fenway Sports Group's quest to find a successor to Kenny Dalglish, sacked as manager last week. However, they are also undertaking a re-structuring at Anfield which will see a technical director, among others, put in place to ensure a long-term strategy is developed and adhered to.

Barnes insists if FSG's decision-making is to set up Liverpool for their next chapter in history they have to get it right. He said: "If the club believes in a new philosophy then they need to stick with it, regardless of how well or badly we do in the short-term."
