Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted Phillipe Coutinho is not for sale ,he believes the Midfielder is an important player in the team
Coutinho pledged his future to Liverpool in January by signing a new five-and-a-half-year contract, with the deal including no release clause
When asked in Hong Kong on Friday if Coutinho was definitively not for sale, Klopp added: “Yes, that’s what you can say, but that’s not since this morning or yesterday, I’m not sure it was different at any time.
“Phil is a very, very important player, but we need to react better when he’s not on the pitch, that’s how it is.
He’s a really good player, he’s still young and can still improve. He’s improved a lot since I’ve been here, but he was good before I was here.”he added.
Coutinho enjoyed a superb 2016/17 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances as Liverpool finished fourth and secured Champions League qualification.
