Klopp: I coped with losing Sahin, and will with Coutinho

Klopp said the Premier League squad was fighting and tried everything to keep Coutinho.

Jamie Carragher can't understand why Liverpool chose to sell Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona this month, rather than wait until the end of the season, and has claimed that "big clubs don't sell in January".

Coutinho completed his £142m move to Barcelona earlier this week, bringing months of speculation to an end and leaving Klopp's side without their most creative and influential player.

The Liverpool boss vowed that the club will "carry on like this" and said that "London is not a bad city" in the case of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who left Arsenal to move to Anfield "for the football". Because I know we tried absolutely everything.

The 25-year-old Brazilian joined the La Liga leaders on Monday after spending five years with the Reds.

In the clip, "Kevin Murphy" introduces himself to the camera, saying: "Hello YouTube, I'm Cork's biggest Liverpool fan". You lose a player, you buy a player.

"If we do something then it needs to be the right decision", he said. In terms of replacing him we will not do insane things.

Carragher's point about Coutinho's excellent form since last summer is undeniably true, and evidence suggests that the midfielder would have continued to play well until the summer, had Liverpool retained him. "Having a player of his quality and bringing him out there [to play], but his head is already away, and then he plays at 40 percent, gets injured or not, it's a hard situation for the whole squad".

"It would have been very hard if we had said, which we could have done, "look, here is your contract and you have to stay here", and to use him in the second half of the season".

"He wasn't ready to do it anymore". Talks of bringing in Naby Keita breaking his clause of joining from RB Leipzig in summer seems to be hard too as the Bundesliga outfit are adamant to keep hold of him until the end of the season.

"I don't know if you can compare - we lost plenty at Dortmund! We will not make insane things". When we had this conversation around Phil Coutinho, I said the same - nothing to say - and I won't change that. It is incredible to know that I am going to live with idols, players with a lot of history.

City, still in the hunt for four trophies this term, could also become the first team to win a top-flight match at Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United in the same season since Wimbledon in 1986-87. To try and draw another picture, I think that would make a really sensible part of our motivation but if that's the only one then we don't have a chance. Always they were a good and stable team.
