Klopp says Coutinho replacement needs to be correct player

Eden Hazard has described Philippe Coutinho as a "fantastic player" and believes that the playmaker's move from Liverpool to Barcelona is bad news for the Premier League.

Brazilian Coutinho was unveiled as a Barcelona player on Monday, following his £145million move from Liverpool last weekend.

Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for. We had fantastic games with him and not that good games with him, we played good without and not that good with him.

"I have every faith in the boys that we just move on now". That's the situation, we are already used to it. Having five attack-minded players works for Guardiola but his team dominate possession to such an extent that you sometimes feel they could play with no defenders and still not concede, simply because the opponent often cannot get out of their own half.

"There was no other option", said Klopp.

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

"We had a lot of talks about different things, how we can do this or that, but if somebody denies things like that then it is clear the decision is done".

He said, "And as I still stand by my words that the situation we are having on ground, is a communal situation". He said the people of his area were law abiding and were providing shelter to displaced Tiv people in the area.

"You know I'm not a manager who counts all the money and goes to the owners and say we need this".

He also insisted that selling Coutinho wasn't a way to cover deals for van Dijk and Naby Keita - who have cost the Reds a combined £130m.

Last week, we covered a report via Bein Sports France claiming that Liverpool are close to signing the Algerian global.

Liverpool rejected three Barcelona bids and a transfer request from the player during last summer's transfer window, but Klopp conceded they could no longer keep the player against his will.

However, that fee has now nearly tripled after Coutinho's move to Barcelona.

Henry ended by tipping the Reds to potentially be the team to overcome Manchester City on Sunday, with the runaway league leaders still unbeaten after 22 matches and seemingly invincible thus far. We knew that if we had the ball, they would suffer.

With Liverpool at this moment unlikely to buy a replacement in the January transfer window, Coutinho's departure provides an opening for Oxlade-Chamberlain and others to secure more regular football. I didn't mind too much people talking because I knew that's what would happen.
