The Brazil playmaker formally declared his desire to move to Barcelona on Friday, just hours after club owners Fenway Sports Group issued a statement saying they would not consider any offers for the player.

Barca, who sold Neymar to Paris St Germain last week for a world-record £200.6m, made their offer on Wednesday having already had a £72m bid for Coutinho turned down in July.

Klopp said he will "have to accept" it if Philippe Coutinho leaves the Reds. "I would say yes, we need to be happy with this", added the Reds boss, sounding more like he's trying to convince himself than the supporters. I think Alberto [Moreno] loses a really high challenge and there should be another player, then you can't play the pass in behind.

'If they don't sell him, then I'm not involved anymore. There's been times in the past where players have been unsettled and they've gone in and said "I'm desperate to go" and it's ended up happening.

"Hopefully, when I play I will bring good performances to the team and I hope that everybody brings a good performance to help us win the game". "It feels not too good, but we know we can do better and have to do better - that's what I told the boys".

It looked very much like the new season would be the same as the old season as Liverpool opened their Premier League campaign with a disappointing draw against Watford FC. How can it change something for me?

"You have to ask the club". It'll be a busy one, as Liverpool has earned a Champions League bid for the first time in his tenure.

The Liverpool legend outlined the reason why Phillipe Coutinho has sensationally handed in a transfer request. Unsurprisingly, it was through comical defending from Liverpool on a set-piece.

Okaka put them ahead inside eight minutes before the hosts scored two goals which could easily have been disallowed for offside. "I think it's pretty clear what FSG said about it". "But at the end of the day it comes down to Philippe Coutinho and his decision, what he's prepared to do, what type of war he's prepared to create to get out because Liverpool won't make it easy for him".
