Liverpool will not keep Coutinho

Klopp has hinted that Philippe Coutinho could be fit to play a part in this weekend's Premier League meeting

Liverpool won’t be able to hold on to Philippe Coutinho if he wants to join Barcelona, says Graeme Souness.

“I don’t think you can keep him,” said Souness, when asked whether Liverpool will be able to hold on to Coutinho.

“The chance to play for a team that would suit his style of play, I don’t think he can say no to it, as hard as that is for Liverpool to accept.

“Ultimately if he wants to go he will go, as much as the club won’t want him to. He’s on a contract but if the big players want to go these days then they get their own way.”
