Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones has praised the club's owners and believes that they are going the right way about building the side.
With the UEFA Financial Fair Play Rules being introduced at the start of next season, the Fenway Sports Group have aimed to run the club on a more secure budget.
Raheem Sterling, Andre Wisdom and Suso have all broken into the first team this season, benefitting from the new youth policy that has been put into place.
And Jones feels the fans appreciate the new policies and admits that it may take time before Liverpool challenge for the title.
He said to Sky Sports: "The likes of Chelsea and Manchester City have spent unbelievable amounts of money. Liverpool haven't necessarily done that.
"The club aren't trying to go out and buy the league in one season. But if you get to the top from building I think the fans grow with the team.
"The owners are quite clever, they have seen it in other sports. For them it is a slow process, it is not going to happen overnight."
Jones also revealed that he thinks the club's owners will be content with how the side has performed this season and hopes the club can keep improving under Brendan Rodgers.
"I think they (the owners) will be happy with what they have seen this season and obviously they will want it to move forward and make that next step and hopefully that will be next season," he added.
"That is the direction we're going in and it is a good place to be."
Liverpool will travel to Aston Villa on Sunday, hoping to bounce back from their humbling 3-1 defeat to Southampton in their last game.
