Sigurdsson wages prevented move: Rodgers

Published Add your comment

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has claimed midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson's increased wage demands scuppered his move to Anfield.

A deal had been struck with the Iceland international for him to return to Swansea - where he had spent the latter half of last season on loan - but when Rodgers moved to Anfield that move hit the rocks. The Reds then appeared to be in pole position because of the player's relationship with the manager, but the 22-year-old joined Spurs.

Rodgers, who revealed Sigurdsson was asking for more money than he had agreed at Swansea, said: "Liverpool would have provided Gylfi with a wonderful opportunity to perform with a manager that he knows and at a club which is a real footballing institution. But he's decided to go to Tottenham, for whatever reason."
