Klopp Says Timing of Coutinho Transfer Request An Issue

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp concedes Philippe Coutinho's fate is out of his hands as the attacker tries to force a transfer to Barcelona. However, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp says it is too close to the season and the end of the transfer window to sell. That decide, for example, just in general, if we sell a player or we don't sell him. I think Alberto [Moreno] loses a really high challenge and there should be another player, then you can't play the pass in behind.

"I can not say a lot about it", he said.

He fumed: "I don't make the decision".

"I think everybody is looking forward to the new season", Can said.

Klopp, who pointed to the statement Liverpool issued on Friday when asked whether anything had changed from the club's perspective, chose his words carefully. "A lot of money is on offer but I can't see that Liverpool need that money".

"I am not part of the discussion with the group".

The Daily Telegraph's chief sports writer Paul Hayward says Coutinho would be a great loss to Liverpool, and believes Barcelona could have made their approach earlier.

The manager also revealed what he said to Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah to help the Reds' record signing turn his debut around after a less than impressive first half. With Champions League coming back to Anfield this season, players will have to be on the peak of their fitness, something that is even more essential, given Klopp's propensity to play the high-octane "gegenpressing" style of football.
