​Liverpool boss Klopp denies Coutinho rift: We're 100% good

Jurgen Klopp says there is no rift between him and Philippe Coutinho.

The Liverpool playmaker has been the subject of three bids from Barcelona, all of which have been rejected by the Reds.

Coutinho has been unavailable, with what the club are calling a back injury, but Klopp says he will be welcomed back when he is fit.

"Of course, everything is okay between me and him," Klopp said.

"Absolutely. 100 per cent.

"He can't start tomorrow [in Liverpool's clash with Hoffenheim] because on top of that [his back injury], he's now ill," the German added.

"It will take time because he has not trained for a long time. I've no idea at this moment (when he will return), we would have to check when he is back."
