Liverpool’s record signing of the defender Virgil van Dijk does not smoothen the chance of Coutinho leaving the Anfield.
The German manager Klopp insists that the Reds do not have to sell Coutinho to recompense he money that they spent on the Dutch defender.
In the recent past Van Dijk penned a contract with the Reds and right now he is the highest paid defender in the world,
On the other hand, Barcelona is trying hard to get the Brazilian in their team and they are leaving no stone unturned to acquire him, and the Catalan giants are ready to offer 115m for him but Liverpool turned down the monumental amount.
Liverpool is desperate to hold Coutinho back, as he is back in his transcendent form.
In an interview, Klopp said: "No, nobody told me that [I would have to sell Coutinho],"
"We have good players and we don't have to sell anybody because of that. So fair play to our owners that they are ambitious."
In recent Coutinho got the Captain’s armband for Liverpool in absence of Henderson, and that helps to remove the situation of Barcelona’s crescendo approach for Coutinho.
Klopp added: "The only thing I will say and the only thing I am interested in is how is Phil playing at the moment,"
"I was really happy about the last few performances and about his impact.
"He showed his character in the games and in the training sessions. That was spot on. It was really good. That is what I am interested in because all the rest I can't, and don't, want to talk about it because if I open the door then you [the media] run all the way through.
"If there is something to say you will know. In my business it makes absolute no sense to talk about things that 'could' 'maybe'' happen because all it does is create stories which 90 per cent of the time are not true. Why should we do that?"
