Philippe Coutinho Post-LFC

Philippe was insistent with me, the owners and even his team-mates this was a move he was desperate to make happen. Despite that, we managed to keep the player here beyond the summer window, hoping that we would be able to persuade him to stay and be part of what we are looking to do.

I can tell the Liverpool supporters that we, as a club, have done everything within our means to convince Philippe that remaining part of Liverpool was as attractive as moving to Spain, but he is 100 per cent certain his future - and that of his family - belongs at Barcelona.

It is his dream and I am now convinced there is nothing left at our disposal to change his mind. Philippe has made a fantastic contribution to this club over his five years of service and as disappointed as we are that he doesn't want to extend that, the relationship we have for him means, with a heavy heart, we wish him well
Ok, lets do the new thread thing...

Nice to see the club treating a player like a human rather than a contracted bit of meat. Good statement from the boss. Let's hope he achieved what he thinks he needs.

Bought for £8.5m Jan 2013; Sold for £140m Jan 2018.

Fair to say we’ve turned him into a bit of a player.

Not too bothered about him leaving to be honest. We are not a one man team nowadays and results when he was not playing did not seem to be any worse

Obviously he had personal reasons as well as professional ones for wanting to move to Spain, and if we do want to get really good South American players at the club this is going to happen eventually with some of them, as we saw with Suarez.

All the "rat" & "cunt" stuff to me is a bit unnecessary, I'm not saying we should be happy for him but meh, he didn't down tools this season and we got a huge fee for him, we'll be fine without him.

Well he was on for pretty much his best ever return for us in goals/assists, so clearly he was trying when he was on the pitch. Which probably was because he knew he was getting his move, if a few months after he wanted.

I'm not bitter at Phil, clearly a dream of his. He did well for us and gave us some cracking moments. But can't believe we have been willing to gamble the season away (as it stands).

six more months and we would have kissed him goodbye and he'd still of had his dream move.

its a shame he showed his this selfish side, not a toss given about his so called team mated or the fans

He played for us for 5 years and won nothing.

In May be will probably have at least one medal with Barcelona after 5 months.

Can't really blame him for not wanting to wait until the summer to be honest.

The faking injury thing leaves a sour taste but this might have been a club led thing.

Good luck to the lad, he deserves the opportunity.

I hope he's shit though!

I hunk he will absolutely smash it at Barca, these 6 months were he has most likely been minding himself have yielded a goal or assist every game. At Barca with better players and fully committed I reckon he’ll go on and fulfill his potential - 20g + 20a a year for me at a minimum for him going forward.

Hate how it ended but as many have said a lot can happen in 6 months, he dug in and the club wilted. The most annoying thing is that we seem to be prepared to gamble on Lallana who has has one good 3 month spell in his time here and that was only 60% of what Coutinho did from a numbers perspective.

I trust Klopp but this is a massive gamble to our chances this season.

Klopp has lost big players before and just got stronger ... usually another player emerges ... I think that player is Lallana .. I honestly think if he can stay injury free he could be knocking on the door of world-class ... his movement off the ball is the best I have ever seen, impossible to mark when he is on it and running games

I like Lallana but he has had genuinely only a three month spell (start of last season) in his Liverpool career to suggest that he can get remotely close to Phil's level. If we are expecting him to replace Phil's output then we'll struggle, he is also coming back from a long injury lay off so no guarantee he will get back to that level.

Personally I don't think we replace him like for like but say we bought a top GK (Alisson) CB (VVD), midfielder (Baby K) and forward (Lemar) with the money then we will have strengthened the team overall IMO.
