Klopp refuses to discuss future of Liverpool striker Coutinho

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp refused to be drawn over possible Barcelona interest in Philippe Coutinho.

When asked whether Coutinho might be sold during the transfer window, Klopp said: "All the things I could say would only create stories - you write the stories anyway.

"So I have nothing to say, that is actually how it is. It is a transfer window but that's all.

"I opened the door because I mentioned that it is a transfer window but there is nothing to say that would help me or the player or the club. That is the only thing I am interested in."

When asked if he might have to consider finding a replacement for Coutinho, Klopp said: "What ever you consider is not my cup of tea.

"Maybe 80 per cent of the cameras are only here about these answers. That is a waste of time then!"
