Jurgen Klopp Was Unsure of Philippe Coutinho Commitment to Liverpool

Alan Shearer Liverpool tighter with Van Dijk but futher reinforcements needed

But, despite having the player under contract until 2022, Klopp insists Liverpool had no alternative but to sell as Coutinho was set on Barcelona and his continued commitment to the team could not be guaranteed.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Anfield's Current Boyfriend (don't fight me on this), has had a pretty decent few months all things considered.

'Players are different. I've had this very often. "We knew it [wouldn't], when the club tried everything". There was a moment where we really had to accept that.

The Liverpool boss said he wasn't disappointed the player had left and suggested that the player would have been no use to the club in the second half of the season. While even the most ardent and optimistic of Liverpool fans will be skeptical about the news, the sudden slashing of odds in the betting market has certainly got a lot of transfer experts interested. It came up massively that it would be very hard if we say: "Here's your contract, you have to stay here" and to use him as a player in the second part of the season.

Nothing will persuade me selling Coutinho now makes sense.

"He wasn't ready to do it anymore".

"[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".

"I cannot give you the details, but we tried all you can imagine, believe me", Klopp said. "We made that decision".

The campaign group Models Of Diversity, which pushes for more diversification across the industry, said H&M should be "ashamed". In a statement, H&M said, "We completely understand and agree with his reaction to the image".

However, Liverpool are not his first choice as the Express claim that Mahrez would prefer a move to Arsenal as he's just bought a property in London and wants to live in the capital.

"I'm always trying to think of songs for players and I love music from the 60s and 70s so maybe another absolute tune from that kinda time", said Kevin. "You always need to react". It is all about the atmosphere in the club. On Sunday, for example, if there's a free kick in the stadium from 18 or 20 yards and everyone is thinking: "ah, Phil". Use it, don't suffer because of it. The next priority should be a goalkeeper because neither Simon Mignolet nor Loris Karius is of the class needed to challenge for the title, though any new arrival is more likely to be during the summer when midfielder Naby Keita will join Liverpool from RB Leipzig for £55 million.

"If we do something then it needs to be the right decision". Acquiring Virgil Van Dijk is the ideal example of Klopp's transfer strategy as he didn't move for any other option in summer despite the defensive frailty and opted to wait for the Dutch centre-back who joined them from Southampton as soon as the window reopened and became an instant hero by scoring a late victor at Anfield in front of the Kops in a Merseyside derby to knock Everton out of the third round of the FA Cup competition.

"I wish Phil all the very best but the only thing I'm concentrating on is Liverpool and winning as many games as we can - starting with Man City on Sunday".

"You can not use him if he's not 100 percent". But he opted to draw an end to his five-year attachment despite the attraction of Champions League football and reportedly paid a fee of £9 mil to secure his £142 mil dream move. They play really good and if you don't respect that then you have a problem. As I said, we had fantastic games with him and not-that-good-games with him.

"We don't have to replace him", he added. That's how it is.

Last week, we covered a report via Bein Sports France claiming that Liverpool are close to signing the Algerian global. When we had this conversation around Coutinho, I said there was nothing to say. In the summer he'll be here, that's what I know as well. "All the rest, nothing to say about it".

Liverpool were handed a boost ahead of tomorrow's visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City with the return to training of 23-goal Mohamed Salah.
