Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers have been criticized by their fans for the lack of transfer activity this summer as the club failed to sign any replacement for striker Andy Carroll. And when news broke out that new signing Borini needs a foot surgery for his fractured bone it only adds to the pressurse that Rodgers is facing. The manager has accepted that Luis Suarez will now carry the entire burden on his shoulder due to the limited strike force at Anfield.Luis Suarez will be the lone striker for Liverpool
Fabio Borini could be out for up to three months after requiring surgery on a broken foot, and Rodgers feels that his youngsters Samed Yesil and Adam Morgan are not yet ready for the challenge and also claimed that he has not even thought about recalling Carroll from his loan at Upton Park. So it will be out and out Suarez who will stand in front for Liverpool.
“I’ve rested him a couple of times knowing the squad we have and the games we have, looking to prioritise, but like most footballers he wants to play every minute of every game,” said the Northern Irishman.
“It is something I need to assess. The most important thing is winning games – that is what we need to do and in order to do that as often as we can I need the best players on the field.
“Luis will absolutely love playing three times a week but I need to try to nurture him because there are still many games to play between now and January.
“And even in January if we bring someone in it may not be January 1, so that is something which, over time, I need to assess and we’ll look to manage the squad.”
On Carroll, Rodgers added: “It isn’t something I have considered, to be honest.
“Andy has obviously gone out to get games. We have people watching when he plays and they report back on how he is doing.
“But with Fabio’s injury just coming up we will assess it from there.”
