    You're letting your own original thoughts blinker you Garrett, as Lionel has pointed out the statement from the club coupled with this latest comment from Klopp removed any shred of doubt. The player was finished playing for the club one way or another.

    The untold damage on the squad of having Coutinho in exile until the summer is difficult to decide but having had sakho hanging around like a bad omen for so long I'm sure Klopp wanted to keep order to preserve our good run and our shot at top 4.

    I don't think it's a case of whether Klopp made the right choice or not, I think he made the only one available to him, the 140 million to reinvest at some point softened the blow I'm sure.

    Genuinely just didn't think Phil was that kind of chap so couldn't see it clearly but the lfc statement should have said enough.

    Most of the time we are all trying to fill in the blanks, we piece together what we see in the media and go with gut feelings for the rest! No need to apologize, you made a call with limited information at hand! Once more has been revealed your perfectly entitled to change your position on the matter

    Would he get a CL medal if we won it this year? Speculative I know but just on the off chance that we did.

    Dropped by Barca last night, manager actually came out and defended the decision saying it was best for the team! Interest to see how this develops considering he's ineligible for Tuesday you'd have thought last night was perfect for him.

    I recall Coutinho needing a few weeks each time he came back from injury etc. before he really got going...

    No doubt the move of club and needing to get used to playing with a new team, will mean it'll take a bit of time for him to settle in, but I can see him doing fine there (maybe not becoming one of their brightest starts though)
