Liverpool Had No Other Option Than To Sell Philippe Coutinho- Jurgen Klopp

Pep Guardiola has reportedly turned his attention to signing Liverpool star

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits that his club had no choice but to let star man Philippe Coutinho move on to Barcelona.

Klopp said the Premier League squad was fighting and tried everything to keep Coutinho.

While Philippe Coutinho is tipped to replace Andres Iniesta, the Barcelona legend has insisted the £142 million man isn't retiring him.

In an exclusive interview with Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Phil Thompson, Klopp said: "I'm a football romantic".

"I am the type of person who relishes the chance to stand up and perform under pressure, I have had to do that my whole career", the 24-year-old says. If you don't miss him, something would have been wrong when you were together.

"I said at the beginning of the season he can be the new Coutinho - obviously I did not know that Coutinho was going to leave".

At this point of considering Hull City's Meyler as a replacement for Coutinho, it should be noted that Kevin is a character played by Irish comedian Richy Sheehy - something Kevin gamely refutes.

"If nothing happens in this moment, Mo is back, he is training completely normally", Klopp concluded.

Despite the Brazilian leaving the club this month he played an important role in the Reds' recent form, particularly in December, where he became undroppable at some stages only for him to now move on to a dream move of Spain. They raved about him, saying what a great lad he is but, above all, he is a top-class player.

GM Chief Executive Mary Barra has promised investors the Detroit automaker will make money selling electric cars by 2021. By 2022, the concern should have a total of 40 models that will be either fully electric or hybrid.

Coutinho's signing at Barcelona could see a slight rise in his ratings in Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 as his new role would require him to pass more, shoot from outside the box and dribble well to occupy the spot or even replace Iniesta in the starting lineup for the Blaugrana.

"When Phil didn't play in some games we still played great football and we still have fantastic players who can score goals - the likes of Mo [Salah], Sadio [Mané], Roberto [Firmino] and everyone else".

"I cannot give you the details, but we tried all you can imagine, believe me".

Jurgen Klopp's side have a golden opportunity on Sunday afternoon to prove they'll be perfectly fine without their Brazilian maestro, when they host league-leaders Manchester City at Anfield. "You always need to react".

"We don't need to replace him, we need to step up".

"Every player is different".

Coutinho, meanwhile, is now in the process of working his way back to fitness after being ruled out for 20 days with a thigh injury after completing his £142 million move to the Camp Nou.

"I have every faith in the boys that we just move on now". He did fantastic in the first part of the season after the things we had to deal with in the summer. He is a little bit early but after that he should be ready. "It looks really good, cool".
