Philippe Coutinho’s move to Barcelona failed during the transfer window and now he has been named in Liverpool’s Champions League Squad.
Despite the fact that Coutinho handed in a transfer request still he remains at Anfield as the club rejected 3 bids from Barcelona, the final offer being worth up to £118m.
Currently, the 25-year-old is on international duty with Brazil and scored in their World Cup Qualifier win against Ecuador on Thursday. After Tuesday’s game against Colombia, Coutinho will return to the UK.
He could make his first appearance of the season for Liverpool in Saturday’s crunch Premier League clash with Manchester City.
Manager Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool got “exactly the situation we wanted” after Coutinho stayed with the club, with Barcelona instead spending £97m to bring in Ousmane Dembele from Klopp’s former club Borussia Dortmund.
“Dortmund decided the player (Dembele) would leave them, so I cannot compare the two situations. We still have a really good player in the squad who can play.”
On 13th of September, Liverpool kick off their Champions League campaign at home to Sevilla owith Maribor and Spartak Moscow completing Group E.
