Did I think I could still use him?

It is hard to deny a player his wish to move to either of the true heavyweights of world football where winners' medals are as good as guaranteed and from a business viewpoint the sale of Coutinho for £142 million made sense. "That's how the song came about, because you realise that we don't even need Coutinho when we've got Salah". You miss a person and I'm sure he's missing us - maybe he doesn't realise in the moment when everything is new there!

On Keita, the Liverpool manager continued: "There's nothing to say about it. I think he suits perfectly the way Barcelona want to play, and have played for the past 20 years", he said.

"Replacement? First of all we have to replace him internally. Right [player] before expensive".

Coutinho moved to the Catalan giants last week for a fee of £106m, plus a further £36m in variables, as the Brazilian worldwide secured his long awaited move to the Camp Nou.

However, that fee has now nearly tripled after Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

The Belgium assistant advocated for summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as a good option to have in Klopp's squad, with the Englishman impressing in his limited opportunities since his £35m switch from Arsenal.

Trump, in vulgar terms, rejects bipartisan immigration proposal at White House meeting
It was unclear why the four Republicans were there, and the session did not produce the results the two senators were hoping for. Many Democrats would oppose providing substantial sums on Trump's campaign promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

"We never had sex or anything, but a lot of things happened - a lot of touching, a lot of molestation". Model Bobby Roache said Weber tried to put his hands down Roache's pants during a casting in 2007.

Despite having three offers rejected by Liverpool last summer, the Blaugrana somewhat surprisingly succeeded in acquiring Coutinho's signature as Ernesto Valverde makes a spirited attempt to craft a side capable of maintaining Barca's place at the pinnacle of the attractive game. That's what I know.

'I can not understand Liverpool's decision to sell Coutinho now. We knew that if we had the ball, they would suffer.

Elsewhere, Daniel Sturridge has been tipped to leave Liverpool this month in order to increase his chances of playing at the World Cup for England this summer.

"Until January 31 there are a lot of things that can happen in the transfer window, not only with Daniel". When we had this conversation around Philippe Coutinho I had nothing to say and I will not start doing that now. It's how it is.

The Liverpool manager added: "It's normal in this business, you lose players and you buy players". But I have nothing to see.

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".

"We have open eyes through this transfer window but we will not make insane things".
