Liverpool moving on with Coutinho gone

Jurgen Klopp says that he dealt with enough departures at Dortmund to cope with Liverpool losing Philippe Coutinho.

Much has been made of how Klopp will look to replace Coutinho but while Guardiola believes Barcelona have themselves a fine player he doesn't think the side he has left behind will be much the poorer for his absence.

"We lost plenty of players at Dortmund... one player is never a problem", he said.

"Always since I'm in here we can have all the monies from transfers and more if needed". And to be honest it was clear 100% there was no chance. "You have to move on though and Liverpool will always be Liverpool".

"The final decision, if I would have said "no way", the club would have said: "okay, let's try", explained Klopp.

Henry could barely stop gushing about Salah's stupendous first half of the season, noticing that he could actually have scored far more. You miss a person and I'm sure he's missing us - maybe he doesn't realise in the moment when everything is new there! "That's over now, we can not do that anymore, so we made that decision".

The Fab Four forwards have been reduced to the Fab Three yet with Adam Lalana fit again and ready to resume the attacking midfield role vacated by Coutinho, Liverpool's front-line should still fire on all cylinders. He can not play for Barcelona in the Champions League as he is ineligible, but two - even one - medal would be welcome because they would be the first club honors the Brazil midfielder, 25, has won.

On Keita, the Liverpool manager continued: "There's nothing to say about it".

Asked about reports the player, who has only just returned to fitness having not featured since December 7, could leave the Reds boss added: "That is part of the transfer window so I have nothing to say about it". As I said, we had fantastic games with him and not-that-good-games with him.

However, that fee has now nearly tripled after Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

Liverpool is undefeated in its last 17 games across all competitions, while Premier League leader City has won 20 and drawn the other two of its top-flight matches this season. He is a player of Leipzig, that's what I know and will be here in the summer, that's what I know as well. "That is all we know".
