The Liverpool manager remained coy when asked about reports linking the Belgian striker to a move to Anfield in the coming days
Brendan Rodgers chose to remain tight lipped when asked the million dollar question despite the fact that the Reds have already triggered the Aston Villa man’s buyout clause. According to reports, the Belgium international has already agreed to a move to Merseyside and in the next few days, an official statement might be forthcoming.
However, the club’s manager says that he does not know anything about those rumours.
Reporter: “Where are up to with Benteke, what can we expect from him?”
Rodgers: “Er, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Reporter: “Haha, come on. Where’s that at?”
Rodgers: “No, I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
Safe to say, Brendan Rodgers is definitely not a good liar and despite the fact that he has remained coy, we all know that this particular deal is going down sooner rather than later.
