Roy Hodgson had a difficult time in the Summer transfer window in spreading around his cash enough to build the squad he inherited from Rafael Benitez.

Despite the financial constraints of having to sell to buy, the Englishman managed to bring in Joe Cole ahead of the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and West Ham. Milan Jovanovic was another free signing, a deal engineered by Benitez before his departure.

“We have a limited squad of players,” Hodgson told reporters on Friday. “I don’t think we’re as strong in depth as many of our rivals, I’d like us to be stronger.”

“I think that the 11 players that we can put out from the start don’t give me enormous alternatives at the moment, especially up front and that’s where the most alternatives would be. We are also short of back players at the club.”

“In midfield we have quite a lot of players, many of whom play in the same position, so for me to really be happy with the squad I would want to balance it out a bit differently to how it’s balanced at the moment but I’m not going to do that in two and a half months.”

Hodgson will be hoping that NESV provide him with funds in January – that is if he remains Liverpool manager under their ownership.
