Celtic boss Brendan Rodgers has revealed Chelsea were keen on Neymar and Philippe Coutinho.

Rodgers was a coach at Chelsea when they were eyeing PSG star Neymar and Liverpool‘s Coutinho.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, he said: “When we were at Chelsea we were aware of Neymar and Coutinho.

“Lee (Congerton, former chief scout at Chelsea) came back from a trip and mentioned them.

“Neymar was in the (Santos) first team, he wanted to stay in Brazil before moving (to Barcelona).

“I love his hunger. He’s a worker.

“He’s come out of the shadows a bit, and obviously felt like he wanted to be the main man at PSG. Neymar is a massive talent.”
