Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers 'approached for Chinese Super League job'

Brendan Rodgers has been offered the chance to return to football management with a big money offer from China.

The Daily Mirror reported that the Carnlough man - sacked by Liverpool last year - was a target for Beijing Guoan before they appointed veteran Italian coach Alberto Zaccheroni last month.

However, the newspaper is reporting that other clubs are interested in employing the 43-year-old.

While it's thought Rodgers, who has been heavily linked to replace underfire Steve McLaren at Newcastle, is keen to have a longer break from the game.

The Chinese Super League has been making waves in the footballing world with numerous big name signings.

Chelsea's Ramires made the switch in January in a £21million deal, while Liverpool target Alex Teixeira left Shakhtar Donetsk in a £38m deal.

On Friday it was reported that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was at the centre of a £100m deal to take the England striker to the Far East.
