‘Bosses Will Decide Philippe Coutinho Future’- Liverpool Manager Klopp Says
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he will “have to accept” it if Philippe Coutinho leaves but expects the club owners to refuse to sell the player.
The midfielder submitted a transfer request after the Reds said he was not for sale and rejected a 100 million euros (£90m) bid from Barcelona.
Klopp suggested the decision was out of his hands as the “bosses will decide”.
Liverpool drew 3-3 at Watford in their opening game of the season, which Coutinho missed with a back injury.
Ex-England defender Danny Mills told BBC Radio 5 live that Liverpool should “bite the bullet” and sell the 25-year-old.
He added: “I don’t think Philippe Coutinho will stay at Anfield. He started with a statement calling for an amicable move, but four days later he submitted a transfer request. It is his dream move and I don’t blame him in the slightest.
“Ultimately, Coutinho will simply remain unhappy and Liverpool simply need to bite the bullet. The club has a £100m asset there, a player who may want to force a move.”
