Video: Brendan Rodgers Praises Dedryck Boyata For World Cup Campaign

Brendan Rodgers has praised Dedryck Boyata for how well he’s played for Belgium at the World Cup.

The Celtic manager is currently away in Austria with his squad on a pre-season tour, but he’s without Boyata as the centre back stars with Roberto Martinez’s Belgian squad.

Despite having defenders playing in high profile leagues, Boyata has started all three group games so far in the competition.

And he’s played very well, helping Belgium to three wins and the conceding of just two goals.

Now Boyata will be focusing on Belgium’s last 16 clash with Japan on Monday, hoping to continue starting for Martinez’s men.

And Rodgers will be watching on hoping that his defender can keep his quality form up.

Speaking to Clyde 1 Superscoreboard this week about a number of topics, Rodgers talked up Boyata’s performances:

Celtic kick off their Champions League qualifying campaign against Alashkert on July 10th and it’s very likely they’ll be without Boyata as Belgium are tipped to go far in the World Cup.
