Liverpool Could Leave Final Decision on Philippe Coutinho Future to Jurgen Klopp

13 November 2017

PHILIPPE COUTINHO has claimed he has no desire to move to Barcelona and is "very happy" at Liverpool.

Barcelona tried to lure Coutinho to Camp Nou in an effort to replace Neymar before the transfer window closed but Liverpool refused to sell the Brazil worldwide.

Brazil eased to a 3-1 win over Japan on Saturday with first-half goals from Neymar, Marcelo and Gabriel Jesus putting the game out of sight well before the break before they eased off the throttle, Tite making a number of changes before Japan grabbed a second-half consolation.

However, Coutinho is now feeling fit and ready, and will be looking to be given a starting berth by manager Tite against England.

Coutinho seems to be in flawless condition and the Brazil worldwide is primed for the Wembley clash.

"I'm playing in one of the biggest leagues in the world", he told reporters before Brazil's friendly with England. "I have fully recovered and I am in a good shape to be available for the match with England".

"I think my game is suited to it because I'm fast and I know how to use my strength. Football has been very generous for me".

"Right now I am extremely happy with my life". "I am honoured to wear this shirt whenever I can", the Brazilian midfielder said in a statement.

Klopp will be undoubtedly be left frustrated should Coutinho pick further hinder his rehabilitation during the clash with Gareth Southgate's England, with Southampton full back Ryan Bertrand - Liverpool's next opponents - among a depleted Three Lions outfit.

"Every day, I work harder than before to improve myself and become a better all-around footballer".

The 25-year-old is said to be "desperate" to move to Barcelona, who will return for their transfer target.
