På dagens presskonferens sa Rodgers bland annat detta angående Sahin-dealen: ”I believe everything has been organised and sorted in terms of paperwork, so we’re hoping in the next 24 hours it can be done.”

Rodgers fortsatte genom att berömma Sahin: ”He’s a great technician. He was the player of the season in Germany and was the captain of Dortmund. Was fantastic at a very young age and got a move to Real Madrid and obviously through injury it hasn’t quite worked out for him. He’s a wonderful player technically and tactically, he understands the game and we hope that his extra bit of quality coming in will really help the group.”
