Klopp unlikely to pick fit and healthy Coutinho

Coutinho and Jesus

Coutinho has yet to play for Liverpool in competitive games this season but turned out for Brazil in both World Cup qualifiers over the global break.

Paul Mariner says Philippe Coutinho must honor his contract now that he'll remain with Liverpool.

However, a switch failed to materialise as Liverpool refused to do business with the Spanish club and instead opted to keep hold of the 25-year-old.

Coutinho returned to Liverpool training today and he will be with the team as they travel to Manchester City this weekend.

Coutinho tried to force a move to Barcelona in the summer transfer window, only for the Premier League side to refuse to sell him.

The playmaker only featured as a substitute in Brazil's win last Thursday over Ecuador, but team manager Tite has stated Coutinho is fit and ready to play a full game against Colombia on Tuesday night.

I never thought there was any prospect of Liverpool selling Coutinho this summer. "We weren't going to start him in both games and play him for 90 minutes", added the former Fulham boss, stressing that they're keeping the players development in mind.

For now, though, we know that Coutinho is back in training.

"We have now to continue with the pre-season, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the time because in the next month we have seven games".

'Of course - all good, all good, ' Klopp said, when asked about his conversation with Coutinho.

"We always have the same decision to make: 'Does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff".

'Barca will never make a player stay if he tells us he wants to leave, as happens at other clubs in Europe, ' Bartomeu told Diario Sport.
