Coutinho has explained the conversation he had with Jurgen Klopp after the Brazilian left Barcelona to join Bayern Munich on loan this summer.

‘He said that Bayern are a big club and the Bundesliga a great league and that he is very happy to see me there.’ ‘Klopp is simply a great coach, one of the best in the world, a real leader,’ said Coutinho.

Liverpool were forced into selling Coutinho for a mammoth fee in January 2018 after he feigned a back injury and handed in a transfer request on the day before the 2017/18 season started – but in hindsight – it was a foolish decision on the player’s behalf… Phil would have jumped at the chance to rejoin Liverpool this summer just gone, but Jurgen Klopp and the club decided that it was not financially viable – nor a necessity in regards to the squad – considering last term we racked up 97 points and won the Champions League.

Following a rough 18 month spell, that despite seeing Coutinho win two La Liga titles, saw his individual stock drop massively, Barca decided to offload the playmaker they spent £142m on.

It was a big honour to work with him.’ Maybe, unlike Klopp, you would have taken a gamble on Coutinho.

Ernesto Valverde simply didn’t get him or fill him with confidence, unlike our manager, who made Coutinho think he was the best player in the world.

Interestingly, he was almost at his best during the six month period before he exited Liverpool, when his heart was already set on Barca.
