Not For Sale: Liverpool Owners FSG's Statement On Coutinho Is Not Enough

Not For Sale: Liverpool Owners FSG's Statement On Coutinho Is Not Enough”

After just about surviving the drop from the English Premier League last season, the Hornets had to make sure that they improve from the 17 position finish previous year and get better results in the coming season.

Liverpool starts the Premier League season at Watford on Saturday.

Even if the Brazilian stayed and Southampton were somehow persuaded to release Virgil van Dijk from his "ordeal", Liverpool's mood would still be a confusing mix of expectation and apprehension.

After finishing fourth last season, Liverpool need to rebuff the perception they took advantage of down years from Arsenal and Manchester United. Hopefully, that would change with the addition of Mohammed Salah.

But the 45-year-old Argentine and his players have come up short two years in a row as the pressure of the title race proved too much for them.

Liverpool is back in the Champions League this season.

Mohamed Salah is set to make his competitive debut in attack and the Egyptian global has been hugely impressive in pre-season following his move from AS Roma.

According to Mundo Deportivo (press image provided below), Liverpool and Dortmund can have huge amounts of cash to spend if Barca opt to sign the likes of Coutinho and Dembele.

But as Klopp prepares his side for their trip to Vicarage Road, he will be without Coutinho, along with Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and Daniel Sturridge.

Klopp was asked by reporters about Coutinho's position at the club given persistent media reports that the midfielder would like to move to Barcelona.

That all adds up to an electric front three of Salah, Mane and Firmino, with Coutinho providing the ammunition from deep.

Liverpool fans rejoiced when the club announced that Jurgen Klopp had agreed to become manager following the promising but disappointing reign of Brendan Rodgers. But at the moment, there are a lot of rumors linking him away from the club.

Gremio vice-president Odorico Roman said: "I do not know of any other proposal". Liverpool pride themselves on their history, but the truth is that they've witnessed a dramatic fall from grace from the dominance of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
