Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has asked why any player would want to leave amid continuing speculation that playmaker Philippe Coutinho will spon exit the club to join Barcelona.
“I don’t see a lot of reasons for each player to leave the club at the moment, and that’s just in general.
“Can you imagine for a minute I am not a little bit interested about the problems or not of Barcelona?
“I will never talk about something I spoke about with a player. But you can imagine, in general, I think for each player Liverpool is a very good club, a very good team at the moment.
“We have a good age of the group. We have very young boys, experience — it’s a good mix and we are on our way.
“I think we got rid of the expectations of 20 years ago and created our own expectations for all the people. They expect a lot from us because of what we did last season.”
“Having Phil not available was never cool for us, but it happened,” Klopp added.
“Every team in the world would miss a creative player, in whichever position, of his quality. That’s not too cool but I am already used to it. You cannot find exactly the same solution. That’s how football works.”
