Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp not angry about Philippe Coutinho's departure

West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has suggested in The Sun that Liverpool should invest the money they have got from the sell of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona on new players.

Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for.

"(I asked myself) 'To use him as a player in the second part of the season did it make sense?

He had no control over that and that tells me that the Anfield transfer committee is still operating in some form at the club. It became 100% clear, no chance. That's the situation and we are already used to it, it's now pretty much a week ago. "I didn't see it like that", he said, before reiterating that Coutinho's determination to push through a move left Liverpool with only one option.

"[In terms of] a replacement, first of all if we have to replace him internally, then we will go with open eyes through this transfer window, but we will not make insane things".

"You miss a person and if you don't miss them then something would have been wrong in the time you were together".

"If we do something it needs to be the right decision", he said of potential signings. "I think he suits perfectly the way Barcelona want to play, and have played for the past 20 years", he said.

"Where the Coutinho departure differs is Liverpool have a more balanced squad now than in 2009, 2011 and 2014", added Carragher.

Nou Camp chiefs previously attempted to end Coutinho's stay at Anfield last summer but were routinely denied despite tabling three successive bids.

Chelsea ace Hazard has talked up the talents of Coutinho, who he has come up against numerous times, and insists that the division is now worse off after losing one of the world's top performers.

'Players are different. I've had this very often. "I knew there would be that process".

In terms of the game tomorrow, I'll be very interested to see how Guardiola's team copes with man of the moment Mohamed Salah.

Coutinho, who joined Liverpool in January 2013, scored 41 goals in 152 Premier League appearances, including seven in 14 matches this season. We knew that if we had the ball, they would suffer.

Liverpool sanctioned Coutinho's dream move to Barcelona on Saturday for £142m, the second biggest transfer fee in history until Kylian Mbappé makes his £160m switch to Paris Saint-Germain permanent.
