Klopp pleased to see rusty Coutinho back for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp was happy to see Philippe Coutinho play in his first competitive match of the season.

The Brazilian, who handed in a transfer request last month, looked rusty in his fifteen minutes on the pitch, a number of wayward touches showed that he was off the pace.

"Phil trained in the last few days really, really well but tonight and tonight a few situations were not too lucky and he was without rhythm.

"But it helped him he could play tonight and it helped us in the long term, for sure, so all OK."
