Philippe Coutinho Unhappy With Unfair Liverpool Treatment

Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool's training camp in Germany

After the game, Jurgen Klopp was naturally asked about the future of Phil Coutinho, who missed the game through injury, a day after handing in a transfer request amid interest from Barcelona.

'It's hard now as he doesn't want to be there - Liverpool is one of the biggest clubs in the world but he doesn't want to be there.

Coutinho has total respect for Liverpool and the club's fans, even though at times he has become frustrated at his role in the team.

Liverpool travel to Vicarage Road to face Watford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon, and are favourites to pick up all three points in their season opener.

"It's like I said: the club is bigger than anybody".

Coutinho handed in a formal transfer request on Friday after the club released a statement saying he would not leave Anfield this summer.

"I've said it already a few times, but maybe it's not been 100% clear, but now you can read it - maybe that's the difference!"

But Klopp is not anxious by the situation, insisting his only concern regards the fitness of the Brazilian, who misses the game at Watford through injury and is also doubtful for the Champions League first leg qualifier against Hoffenheim in midweek.

Liverpool have thrown Barcelona's plans into chaos after holding firm and refusing to sell Philippe Coutinho to the club.

That news emerged only hours after Liverpool's owners had issued a statement stressing their stance that the 25-year-old would not be sold during the current transfer window.

"He has back problems and has not been training since last Friday. No, he is not available, he is also a doubt for Tuesday, unfortunately". According to the Daily Record, Liverpool are prepared to do business with the La Liga giants, but have priced the player at £137m.

"That's the way I feel but the way I see it panning out is that the club will try as much as they can to keep him". At this moment, I'm just concentrating on my team.
