Klopp: Coutinho out of my hands

Share

Anfield HQ's Twitter site confirmed the revelation, and now that Liverpool have secured Champions League football for the coming season, they'll want to maintain their top offensive threats for the coming campaigns as they prepare to battle for supremacy season in, season out.

Liverpool had looked set to take all three points as they twice fought back to lead 3-2 at Vicarage Road but Miguel Britos' injury-time strike earned the hosts a share of the spoils.

"I can say something that is maybe a more important thing".

"We spoke about it at half-time and second half was much better". The second was really unlucky because we'd already defended it, but again it's formation. No, of course not.

"The problem here are Barcelona, because they will be saying to Coutinho's representatives: 'It's now or never".

"We have to work on it, but that's our life". That's one thing - it can happen in the first matchday and we have to adapt to all these things. We had the [Robert] Lewandowski thing [at Dortmund] and that was hard when he went to Bayern on a free transfer. "At this moment I am just concentrating on my team". No price at which we are ready to give in.

Sadio Mane equalised for Liverpool in the 29th minute of the game.

Shattering the hopes of Barcelona, a statement on Liverpool's website echoed, "The club's definitive stance is that no offers for Coutinho will be considered and he will remain a member of Liverpool Football Club when the summer window closes". We passed but we couldn't see what we actually wanted. But we actually did. I can not say anything about it. Asked whether he was upset with Coutinho's conduct, the manager said: "First of all, if I would be upset with the player, I would tell him".

"I can not say anything about it, but I only work with the players I have. That's what I'm always doing".

"I don't think (it changes anything)". I don't make the decision. "It's just like it is".

Coutinho handed in a transfer request on Friday, and the Reds' legend believes the player will have acted under duress from Barca, who had previously failed with two bids.

FSG is pretty firm on not selling Coutinho, but if a bid of over £100 million is received, it might be better for the Reds to cash in on the money and sign Insigne as a replacement instead of keeping an unhappy player.
