Jurgen Klopp gives update about Coutinho ahead of match against Manchester City

Jurgen Klopp gives update about Coutinho ahead of match against Manchester City

Philip Coutinho left Brazil after worldwide duty, got on a private plane to return home and started smiling.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Philippe Coutinho will be left out of the Reds squad to face Manchester City on Saturday following the recent transfer window in which he was consistently linked with a move away from Anfield.

The Brazil worldwide, who was the subject of three failed bids from Barcelona during the recent transfer window, has missed the opening three games of the new Premier League campaign with a back injury.

Klopp said that Liverpool "need to perform all the time" and "need to be ready all the time", insisting that they "need obviously more players than a team or football club needed in the past".

Oh, yeah - and Ilkay Gundogan is still recovering from his famously-mourned death injury last season. I think we handled it really well.

We have to continue like it's pre-season, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the tim.

"He can fit in a few positions", Klopp explained.

We can use these four or five days for proper training - we have all the numbers [regarding Coutinho's physical performance] from the Brazilian FA.

"So I have made a decision to leave him out of the squad for City".

"I know it's something special for a player who's never been rotated and has always played with the previous managers, but in my case he's going to play like last season - a lot of games".

"Nothing that I'm aware of was unforgivable", said Klopp. We want to have him on the pitch as often as possible.

"Nothing else to say, actually, so he's back and we had a really good conversation, so good".

Klopp spoke of the importance of rhythm with his line-ups, as much as rotating to keep his regular starting players fresh, and noted the challenge of striking a balance.

Both teams will fancy their chances of pulling off the victory given the firepower they have up front and because there will certainly be goals, the team with the better defense is expected to seal the points.

However, forward Raheem Sterling is suspended following his red card at Bournemouth. We try absolutely everything to help them [the young players] to play with us and he wanted to play in the first team.
