Klopp says Coutinho replacement needs to be correct player

Share

It's the truth when he said he left Liverpool only for one club, Barcelona, and there was a moment when we had to accept that.

Coutinho quit Liverpool for Barcelona last week ending the long-running transfer saga.

Brady wrote in The Sun: "Liverpool's American owners will decide whether Jurgen Klopp can spend the Coutinho cache, which will be paid £106m up front with add-ons to come".

Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for.

Jason Roy century puts England on course to clinch ODI series opener
Australia captain Steve Smith , left, and England counterpart Eoin Morgan will play in a series of five one-day internationals. Since Bayliss took over in May 2015, England have won only 15 of his 38 Tests in charge (along with 18 losses and five draws).

Even so, he's a very good player and will need to be replaced eventually. It's not that there was an open question or something and in the end 50 per cent pro, 50 per cent contra and I had to make the decision. "If there is somebody who should be angry or disappointed it could be the manager of the club but I'm not because I know the club tried absolutely everything to convince Phil to stay and carry on together".

"Could we use him still?"

While the skilful Algerian may not be endowed with Coutinho's unbelievable passing range and ability to dictate the tempo of a game, Mahrez is entering the peak of his career and having spent three seasons in the Premier League, would certainly make an instant impact at Anfield. It is not that they say "You've got this but on the other hand we've done this and this and so you can not spend".

He added: "If the club said after the first call [from Barcelona said] "good idea, we wanted to call you actually because we don't want to have him" then it would be different". I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him; he was five years here and since I came in he was always in the dressing room.

Barcelona agreed to sign the Brazilian star Coutinho from Liverpool for 160 million euros in the third richest deal of all time after Paris Saint Germain's Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. But we want to play good football without Phil.

"Until January 31 there are a lot of things that can happen in the transfer window, not only with Daniel". He was not ready to do that anymore.

"I don't know if you can compare - we lost plenty at Dortmund!"

In terms of replacing Coutinho, Klopp admits Liverpool will explore the transfer market for potential new signings, but will not be rushed into reinvesting the £142m. I believe he knew back in August that he would have to find an alternative for Coutinho.

"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".
