Philippe Coutinho

English Premier League outfit Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made a major confession about his former player and Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho ahead of his team’s clash against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-finals.

Philippe Coutinho had forced his way out of the Anfield about a year ago to the Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona but it is obvious that he has not been the same player he was at the Merseyside outfit.

It was even rumoured that he is seeking a move away from Spain with Man United and Chelsea reported to be interested in handing him the return to the English Premier League.

However, Manager Jurgen Klopp has refused to welcome the Brazilian international back to the Premier League but he has confessed to be missing him.

Jurgen Klopp admitted that Philippe Coutinho is a world class player who has got something to offer to any team he joins.

The German boss added that he was left with no choice than to move on without Philippe Coutinho as he could not imagine that his team would be as good as this.

However, the Reds were able to secure the signature of Mohamed Salah who has since lifted the team alongside Sadio Mane and now Virgil Van Dijk.
