"Everything is fine. We have no money issues at this club", Klopp went on to say.

Coutinho was linked with Barcelona in the summer, but stayed at Liverpool and scored 12 times in 20 appearances this season before his move to Spain. Because I know we tried absolutely everything.

"It was just clear after we spoke that it would not work out", said Klopp. We got a red card, which was the worst place in world football to be one down - wow! "If we do it in this window, I don't know", he explained.

His numbers are not too shabby and the fact that he is still 24, makes him an attractive buy.

He told reporters: "On an average day, after an average training week, we still thought: 'Come on, he can do something special'".

"One player has left and it's not too cool but it's not a real problem at all". But from the looks of things, he will have to find a domain in the midfield roles. Why? But it was clear - that's over now so we made that decision.

"There was no other option", said Klopp. It's business as usual. "I would love to see Klopp sign David Meyler as he is from Cork like me and he's nearly as big a Liverpool fan as me". "Goals and creativity all over the team".

On Sunday Liverpool get their first opportunity against the Premier League's runaway leaders City, who beat them 5-0 in the reverse fixture, a game that saw Sadio Mane sent off.

"There will never be a player that can make me retire or kick me out of here". That's how it is. Names such as Thomas Lemar and Riyad Mahrez have been rumoured to move to Anfield, but Thierry Henry believes Jurgen Klopp may already have such a player on his books.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has insisted that Liverpool "remain a top, top team", despite the loss of star midfielder Philippe Coutinho. Not mid-season, ' Carragher said in his column for The Daily Telegraph. We played fantastic football without Phil. He was five years here and was here since I came in. The Brazilian created 3.24 chances per 90 while with Liverpool this season, with 0.49 resulting in assists.

The Anfield club resisted three previous offers for the 25-year-old last summer and had wanted to keep their influential playmaker until the summer. "We go with open eyes in this window but we won't do crazy things".

How will Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp ensure that doesn't happen?

Phillipe Coutinho has come to Barcelona after a long-drawn transfer saga reached its conclusion.

"I wish Jurgen and the team nothing but joy and success for the rest of this season and beyond". Stoke City were heading into the Sky Bet Championship under the Welshmans management, and the 2-1 FA Cup third round defeat by League Two side Coventry City proved the final straw.
