Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville believes Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea‘s ability to spend big in the transfer market will be the main reason why Liverpool will fail to dominate the Premier League in the coming years.
The Reds are currently 15 points ahead of the Citizens after having won the title with seven games to go, but when asked if he is concerned about Jurgen Klopp’ side winning multiple league trophies, Neville replied:
“No, I’m not. What would concern me about Liverpool for a long period would be if they were bought out by a super-rich owner, who invested at the level of Manchester City (or) Manchester United.”
“Liverpool still, in their transfer business, are still quite modest compared to the other clubs. Their owners just don’t have the money of a Manchester City, or the spending power of a Manchester United or a Chelsea.”
It is a fair comment to make. Liverpool did not spend at all last year and they are not predicted to spend big this summer either, which makes them sitting ducks for other clubs.
City have shown what they are capable of this season but their lack of consistency has been their downfall. If they can address the weaknesses at the back during the next transfer window, you’d expect them to be right back in the title hunt next campaign.
