Coutinho hands in transfer request after Pool owners rule out sale

West Ham Player Ratings v Man Utd

At 1pm on Friday Sky Sports News revealed Coutinho had handed in a transfer request, with Liverpool confirming they had received, and rejected, the request an hour later.

"In football life, it makes sense to be really self-critical and that's what we are of course, but in the end if you do everything on the first matchday, you can not expect perfection", explained Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to the club's official website.

"If they don't sell him, then I am not involved any more".

'I think Alberto lost the challenge, which could maybe have been a foul, and there should already have been a player from us in the half spaces which would have meant you can't play the pass in behind. I am responsible for all of players, not just one, two or three.

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

"It was similar last season and I think it will happen again this season", he added.

The Brazil worldwide directly communicated this desire to the Merseysiders via email on Friday following a strong statement from Fenway Sports Group (FSG) that his exit would not be sanctioned this summer . "You have to ask them".

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.

"You have to ask them".

Serving an FA ban due to his misconduct charge with relation to betting, a club-less Barton was speaking to Talksport radio today ahead of Liverpool's opening Premier League fixture against Watford.

Watford went into the game underdogs and proved everyone wrong by earning a point against a very good Liverpool side.

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard said earlier this week that Coutinho will have to create "war" if he is to leave Liverpool for Barcelona.

Liverpool are disappointed with the way Coutinho has handled things, especially as the club had previously made it clear to him in face-to-face meetings that a move to Barcelona would not be entertained at the moment.
