Brendan Rodgers has told Sky Sports that he tried to sign Dele Alli while Liverpool manager but the club could not get the deal done.
Speaking to Goals yesterday ,the former Liverpool boss Rodgers confirmed:
“We thought we had him at Liverpool. The manager of MK Dons actually drove him down to us.
“I spent a couple of hours in a hotel room with him and he wanted to come to Liverpool. It was all about getting the deal done with the club but unfortunately it never got done.
“On Saturday evening we thought it had got done but eventually he went to Tottenham, which was frustrating and disappointing. He’s done really well there.”
