Klopp: “Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players”

Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are under no pressure to sell Philippe Coutinho and considers the midfielder priceless to the club.

According rumours last night around the social media circles , that liverpool have rejected a second bid valued around 90.4 million pounds  from FC Barcelona for the little magician Philippe Coutinho .

Coutinho recently signed a long term contract without buyout clause and also insisted  he is happy with club and want to win trophies with liverpool fc. Meanwhile there were rumors floating around the social media that if any amicable deal can be reached , coutinho could make a move to Barcelona.

But, in an exclusive interview with Sky Germany, Klopp said: “Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go. No price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.”

Coutinho had very good 2016/17 campaign, scoring 13 times and providing seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances as Liverpool finished fourth and secured Champions League qualification.

The Liverpool manager added: “Today, no player on the planet is untouchable. But a transfer is also a question of timing and if you have the opportunity and the need to react to such a transfer.

“Also you have to ask, if you have the time to react. But just because of one request of one club, we don’t have to think about that. We are not in that situation.”

    Bellamy says we should sell Couts and buy Costa. Diego Costa. Yeah, that Diego Costa. Bless him.

    • gegenpressing

      Thought it was Phil Neville that said that…

      • Abbo Dave

        Shit, you’re right! Well that makes a bit more sense, then. I duly and profoundly apologize.

        • jolive

          Thought it was unusual for David Bellamy to talk about Liverpool, he normally talks about Manure…..i thank you

          • KeithSA

            Craig

          • jolive

            google David Bellamy, it will all make sence

    • jolive

      Costa’s old enough to be Couts’ dad, poor old fucker is gonna need to take piss breaks during play soon….saying that, he does go door to door collecting scrap metal in the evenings and we want to expand the ground again.

    • OldFlaky

      Bellamy is playing golf…with Riise and a brain damage…

    • RedNeve

      Costa’s so fucking ugly he makes Beardo look handsome…!

  • jolive

    well, i was hoping for a few more statements regarding transfers but telling barca to fuck off tells the world we are aiming for the top now. Quite enjoyed that, let’s all say it together, ‘fuck off barca, ya pricks’

    • gegenpressing

      The world will believe what it wants to believe (think most believe FSG just want more money) but I don’t care about that…Just want us better on the pitch and we won’t be better with 100 million and without Coutinho…Glad Couts isn’t like Dembele (we don’t need that distraction at the beginning of the season) and I’m hoping his “back” issue is sorted once the transfer window closes…

  • jalkapallo

    Klopp said it before, no way you bast*rds will get him. And I love every bid of it 🙂

  • Riiseandshine

    Ask them if they want Sakho…..

  • Love it😂😂

  • Ash

    And Dembele didn’t turn up for Dortmund training and didn’t answer his phone. If he does go to Barca they’ll back off Phil this summer too.

    • gegenpressing

      They say he is in Paris awaiting a transfer…Think Barca want both him and Phil though….

  • NorseDweller

    Good stance. Keeping him for the upcoming season is vital, especially since we failed to land Keïta.

    • gegenpressing

      Even if we got Keita, it would still be vital to keep him (and not for footballing reasons)

  • Let it be known.

  • Kylian Mmmbopp

    Who wants to play for Barca?
    Even if they ask me, i would say hell No — who is this inter-rejected Coutinho anyway?

    If i play for Barca and scores a hattrick every other week, the newspapers will keep writing Messi didnt score for 6 matches in a row.l!

    • GOLDEN family <3

      Can you do wicket keeping?

  • Riiseandshine

    Love it!…About time Barca got knocked back. Hope BD hold firm on Dembele also..If we could just get Van Dijk over the line and maybe stick in a sneaky third bid for Keita?

    • hope they buy dele ali from spurs for some insane amount.

      • Riiseandshine

        Where did Spurs buy him from again? Some championship club would be in for a windfall..

        • at leas it will weaken them for this season which is good in short term

        • SuarezSticksIt2U_Again

          That imbecile Rogers didn’t think he was good enough…and he’s a Liverpool supporter.

          • Riiseandshine

            yeah, that sucks…

          • Stan Dinaround

            That imbecile Rodgers was desperate to sign him, but he was vetoed by the others who thought he wasnt worth 3mill…

          • gegenpressing

            To be fair, I’m sure this happens all the time within clubs…Just that most of those don’t go on to be world beaters with rival teams…

    • MentalAndBookmarked

      Apparently there’s been a flurry of betting on keita moving all of a sudden.

      • Riiseandshine

        Pay no heed to that, I remember the bookies stopped taking bets on Ribery to Liverpool under Rafa

      • nah ignore that.. having said i still dream abt vvd keita announcement on deadline day 🙂

        • Riiseandshine

          It would be class…Don’t see leipzig budging though

        • MentalAndBookmarked

          Do you reckon they really will refuse to sell vvd?

          • Riiseandshine

            Suicide if they do..They’ll lose a ton of money

          • MentalAndBookmarked

            Well they don’t really need the money, players have become damn expensive and his value is unlikely to fall.

          • Riiseandshine

            It is though. When the situation becomes a need to sell, which it will, then no club is going in with a high bid. It’s laughable stuff. Southampton sold us players. LFC never actually broke in and kidnapped their players..This “poor us” routine is embarrassing from them. They gave the player permission to leave but then threw their toys out of the pram…

          • from business perspective it will be suicide if they dont but human nature sometimes refuse to accept defeat

    • gegenpressing

      BVB just rejected a Barca bid for Dembele…

      • Riiseandshine

        haha….delighted

        • gegenpressing

          However, their player seems to have gone on strike and is now suspended…This is going to rumble on for a bit and cause a distraction for their new manager at the beginning of the season…Just what they didn’t need…

          • Riiseandshine

            As long as it distracts Barca from us

          • gegenpressing

            Think they want both Couts and Dembele though I doubt they will get either (unless they put in ridiculously outrageous bids)

  • MentalAndBookmarked

    So new contract talks this autumn? If he refuses then next summer it is for his move.

    • lets dont look beyond september as of now.

    • SuarezSticksIt2U_Again

      No need for a new contract.

      Just give him a pay rise.

      This contract has no buy out clause.

  • Hopefully this will shut up our moaning lot

    • MentalAndBookmarked

      There has been a lot of moaning for sure!

      • Riiseandshine

        Course there has, it’s been a hugely frustratung Summer

        • MentalAndBookmarked

          and it’s not getting any better!!

          • Riiseandshine

            At least couts is staying though

    • Riiseandshine

      We moan because we care 🙂

      • too much moaning spoils the mood 😀

        • Riiseandshine

          Can’t be butterflies and rainbows all the time..That’s what makes the ups so enjoyable

          • GOLDEN family <3

            When was the last time we saw a butterfly? Don’t tell me Milner as a new signing?

          • Riiseandshine

            It was when Moreno emerged from his cocoon..no longer all legs, but with bright colourful wings…(Fast forward to Saturday: “what was Moreno thinking? Penalty to watford”)

      • gegenpressing

        Moaning is necessary sometimes but it spreads negativity among the fanbase…

        • Riiseandshine

          nothing wrong with a bit of constructive negativity (criticsim is a better word I guess) though…as long as it isn’t over every little aspect of the club.

          • gegenpressing

            Yeah, I agree…We don’t all have to agree but we all love the club…

          • jolive

            Gegs, you jinxed spurs yesterday, do it again with the scum;)

          • gegenpressing

            Lol…you mean with the Danny Rose interview?

          • jolive

            ha, ye, i thought of you instantly

          • gegenpressing

            People will be surprised at how different a team Spurs will be without their quick, rampaging fullbacks (even though Walker and Rose didn’t get much game time last season). Doubt that Rose will leave this summer but he sure isn’t going to sign any other contract with Tottenham…

          • Riiseandshine

            As long as it’s not ott…unless it’s origi 😂 Then it can be ott

          • gegenpressing

            We all have players we have slightly irrational feelings about…

          • Riiseandshine

            Like Onyx and Gini…get a room Onyx! 😉

          • jolive

            get a room Riise

          • Riiseandshine

            I have a room…padding on the walls and all

          • jolive

            Limited edition Divok Origi rubber mattress cover

          • Riiseandshine

            Shudder….it would prob just be full of holes and keep falling off the bed anyway
