Liverpool manager, Brendan Rodgers has lamented at the lack of quality at the Anfield. He also says the Reds lack leadership and the exit of Gerrard will create a void.
He says this are issues he intends to address during the transfer window.
“That’s what we have to find – the answers to that,” he said. “You have to find the solutions. It is an incredible lot of experience, game management and quality gone out of the team but it is something we will find I am sure.
“Stevie has a huge influence in the changing room and a star quality. Of course it is something that will be missed, but if you want to be the big player at a club like this you have to step up and make the contribution in the big games.
“That is the idea next season. I am sure that will be the case.
“We have players with good character and if we can throw in some quality with that it is important.
“We need threat at the top end of the field because too many have disappeared for us, you only need to look at the number of goals.
“We have to find ways to get those goals back, the creativity and offensive threat while staying disciplined in our defending.”
