Brendan Rodgers is sure that his Liverpool team can challenge for a top-four finish next season because of the new additions to his squad.
Liverpool have already completed the signing of Kolo Toure on a free transfer from Manchester City, and Liverpool are also thought to be in the running for Spanish stars Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto.
Rodgers added Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge to his ranks in January and these two signings propelled Liverpool up the table, with Coutinho especially impressing in his first stint in English football.
Talking to Liverpool reporters, Rodgers was sure that he could improve on his teams seventh place finish last season.
"I'm not here to be comfortable, to sit and earn the money and just enjoy being Liverpool manager. There's a pressure that comes with it and I believe we're in a much better place to challenge now. I think we can do it - I believe we have built a real good base this year," Rodgers said.
Rodgers also dismissed big-money transfers as the way to gain success, stating he wants to challenge with his current squad.
"Of course, it will be a tough ask because, as we improve, other clubs will have masses more money to do so as well. But it's not my job to look for excuses. I have to find the solutions to try to push us in there- and I believe that won't be too far away."
"I believe we will improve again- and we have to because we want to sustain a challenge and aim higher every season," continued Rodgers.
