Liverpool fans have forgiven Coutinho – Klopp

By Isoccer Staff

 

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool fans have forgiven Philippe Coutinho for asking to go.

The Reds’ brilliant Brazilian midfielder wanted to quit last month for Spanish giants Barcelona.

Barca were willing to pay more than a £100million for Coutinho but the Anfield club refused to sell.

Boss Klopp has since reintegrated Coutinho back into the side after bringing him on in the 76th minute at home to Sevilla in the Champions League.

Coutinho made his third successive start in the 3-2 win at Leicester, where he scored a brilliant right-foot free-kick to make it 2-0.

Klopp reflected: “It says a lot about the relationship between our supporters and Phil.

“When he came on for 15-20 minutes nobody knew how Anfield would react.

“Anfield pushed and there that’s what I really love in football.

“Maybe we don’t always agree in each moment like people are, but when we have a short minute to think then we remember we are family.

“That’s how they react and I really loved it.

“That helped Phil a lot so he can play football, concentrate on football and he can perform.”
