Liverpool boss Rodgers excited about Joao Carlos Teixeira talent

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is excited by what he's seen from Portuguese youngster Joao Carlos Teixeira.

The 21-year-old midfielder has spent time at the club's senior training complex recently along with a handful of other Academy graduates - and the boss is pleased by what he's seen.

Rodgers told the Liverpool Echo: "I have contact with Alex Inglethorpe on a daily basis and Joao has been one of the outstanding performers for the reserves.

"When he has stepped up to the first team before it has been difficult for him.

"But I've seen a big difference in him. He is a talent."
