​Liverpool hero Enrique: Nobody is better for us than Coutinho

Former Liverpool star Jose Enrique thinks the club should re-sign Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian has not been the same player since he left for Barcelona, and has not set the world alight during his loan spell at Bayern Munich either.

Now he is back on the market for the summer, and Enrique hopes Jurgen Klopp re-signs him on loan or permanently.

The former Reds defender told Stadium Astro: "We need a playmaker, a number 10, who is going to be better than Coutinho for us?

"He knows the club, he knows the city, he's going to perform straight away because he's been a Premier League player.

"The only problem is wages-wise, I believe he's very, very high wages-wise in Barcelona, so I'm not sure if he will go to Liverpool obviously losing money.

"The problem with Barcelona, they try to play him on the left side all the time, in Neymar's position and he's not this type of player, he needs to play in the middle."
