Liverpool boss Rodgers made German trip to check on Julian Brandt

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers was in Germany on Friday night. The Mirror says Rodgers made a personal check on Bayer Leverkusen wunderkind Julian Brandt on Friday night.

Rodgers saw the teenage attacking midfielder, who has also been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea, score for Anfield hero Sami Hyypia's side against Hamburg.

The Reds' manager took time off from the title chase, which continues with a Sunday visit to West Ham, to watch Brandt who joined Leverkusen from Nurnburg despite interest from English clubs because he wanted to play right away.
