Brendan Rodgers has admitted that he was surprised at David Moyes’ comments ahead of Liverpool’s trip to Old Trafford at the weekend, ESPN understands.
In the run up to the match, the Manchester United manager described his opponents as favourites, something which Rodgers say he would never say about a visiting team to Anfield.
Former Liverpool youth player Tom Ince rejected the chance to return to Anfield in favour of a loan move to Crystal Palace, the Metro understands.
Ince’s father, and former manager at Blackpool Paul, who also used to play for the Reds, has said that there was an opportunity for the 22 year old to re-sign for the club where he began his professional career, but declined as he doesn’t yet feel ready.
Liverpool are closing in on the signing of Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk winger Yevhen Konoplyanka, Sky Sports understands.
The Reds have already began negotiations with the Ukrainian club as they look to conclude a deal for the 24 year old, who has nine goals in twenty-three appearances so far this season.
