Iniesta denies claims Coutinho will push him out of the club

Iniesta denies claims Coutinho will push him out of the club

Because I know we tried absolutely everything - the club tried everything to convince Phil to stay here and carry on going the way together with us. It is not that they say "You've got this but on the other hand we've done this and this and so you can not spend".

"If we do something then it needs to be the right decision".

Liverpool flush from the £142 million they got from offering Coutinho are hoping to fortify their squad with administrator Jurgen Klopp hoping to purchase players justified back and focal midfield positions. We were fighting until the last second, tried everything. That's a decision I have to make - Does it make sense? "In the end, it was quite easy". Oxlade-Chamberlain said that the Reds played good football even when Coutinho did not play.

"I don't want to sound disrespectful because I really liked him".

"I don't know if you can compare - we lost plenty at Dortmund!"


Klopp is confident he will be given all the resources he requires to replace Coutinho and insisted that the £142m would not be used to pay for the club's recent transfer activity, namely the record signings of Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita.

"We don't have to replace him", said Klopp. They were chasing the Premier League silverware alongside league leaders Chelsea but a dismal January ruined their title dreams and knocked them out of the semis of the League Cup as well as the fourth round of the FA Cup competition being defeated by Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"We will get all the money", Klopp is quoted as saying by the Liverpool Echo. "Everything is fine. We have no money issues at this club". Salah and Mane are tough guys for us to control, especially when we lose the ball in risky positions, because they are so fast, so quick and so clever in the box. While even the most ardent and optimistic of Liverpool fans will be skeptical about the news, the sudden slashing of odds in the betting market has certainly got a lot of transfer experts interested. Nobody told me: "'No way'".

I can guarantee you that Pep Guardiola, if he was in a similar situation at Manchester City, would not have been forced to sell a player like Coutinho as seems to be have been the case with the Liverpool boss.
