Liverpool had no option but to sell Coutinho, coach says

Liverpool had no option but to sell Coutinho, coach says

The club was fighting until the last second to keep him.

After a whole summer of drama, the 25-year-old Brazilian joined the Spanish club for 140 million pounds ($190 million) in January, in what he described as his "dream move".

Klopp says that the club were desperate to keep the former Inter Milan teenager but were forced to accept that he had his heart set on a dream switch to the Nou Camp. That's football, that's the business that we are in. Do I think I can use him and can he help us?'

"That side, there will never be a player that can make me retire or kick me out of here. I just want him to be one of the best players in the world and to enjoy what he can do". He did fantastic in the first part of the season after the things we had to deal with in the summer.

Liverpool are understood to have opened talks with RB Leipzig in an attempt to bring forward Naby Keita's arranged transfer.

"When Phil wasn't in the team we still played great football and we have still incredible players who can score goals - the likes of Mo [Salah], Sadio, Roberto".

"I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him".

"[In terms of] a replacement, first of all if we have to replace him internally, then we will go with open eyes through this transfer window, but we will not make insane things".

"While some players such as Alexis Sanchez and Virgil Van Dijk lost form after being denied their summer move, Coutinho was the opposite".

Jurgen Klopp's team are known for their high energy and work rate, and Owen doesn't believe that Mahrez has the attributes to suit that style of play. "All the rest, nothing to say about it".

Liverpool were handed a boost ahead of Sunday's visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City with the return to training of top scorer Salah. Providing the Reds can remain secure in defence there will be space for the forwards to run into and plenty of opportunities to counterattack, and they are fully capable of exploiting that even without Coutinho, particularly with Adam Lallana now fully fit again after a four-month layoff. "Goals and creativity all over the team".
