Watford 3-3 Liverpool

Philippe Coutinho Liverpool Hertha Berlin

The midfielder submitted a transfer request after the Reds said he was not for sale and rejected a 100 million euros (£90m) bid from Barcelona.

"I can say something that is maybe a more important thing".

"I have to accept decisions from owners, that's how it is, and sometimes from players, but for this moment I just have to concentrate on my team".

"If he doesn't come now, we're never coming back for him ever again.' So they're piling the pressure on and that's why Philippe's reacted". "I am responsible for the whole team, all the players, so I need to be focused on the players who are available".

"It does not hurt, I promise, it's a simple header, you have to deal with those things".

However, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group recently insisted that Coutinho would not be leaving Anfield, and Klopp has revealed that he still believes that to be the case.

"I don't know what they have been doing during pre-season, but they certainly have not been working on it".

The German said he did not think Coutinho's transfer request changes his situation.

Coutinho's actions are a surprise, because when players officially ask to leave, they usually prefer to do it through their representatives.

The in-form winger won a penalty which Roberto Firmino converted in the 55 minute before scoring himself two minutes later following an assist from the Brazilian to make it 3-2.

"It's a similar situation to Luis Suarez, where he put in a transfer request and was made to stay by FSG at that time, but you always felt he'd only be at the club for 12 months".

A member of Coutinho's family has told Sky Sports News that the player feels aggrieved at the way he has been treated by manager Klopp.

Klopp said he was also a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League play-off first leg at Hoffenheim as he had "not been in training since last Friday".

The experienced Uruguayan defender celebrated just his second Watford goal since joining the club but, despite a solid result, the former Napoli man wants to see improvements.
