AS Roma star reveals why he rejected Liverpool this summer

Published Add your comment

Liverpool were keen on securing the services of French defender Lucas Digne this summer, or so reports were readily suggesting. Unfortunately for Brendan Rodgers the former Paris Saint-Germain star opted for Serie A giants AS Roma, and he’s now explained exactly why he snubbed the other offers on the table. The 22-year-old revealed that playing in the Champions League was a major factor, something that the Reds can’t offer this season, and also talked up his connection with Rudi Garcia. It makes sense to assume that the left-back was wanted as competition for Joe Gomez. Meanwhile Nathaniel Clyne has issued a rallying cry to his teammates ahead of the Reds’ important fixture against Manchester United this weekend. Last time out Liverpool were humbled 3-0 by West Ham at home, and Clyne said his team needed to be at their opponents’ throats.
