Juventus are planning to use Philippe Coutinho's massive £143 million move from Liverpool to Barcelona as the "benchmark" for any move related to Paulo Dybala, according to reports.

"Because there was no other option", said the Liverpool manager when asked why Coutinho was sold in this window.

Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for. "That is easy because we still have fantastic players here".

In the clip, "Kevin Murphy" introduces himself to the camera, saying: "Hello YouTube, I'm Cork's biggest Liverpool fan".

"If someone wanted to have other players then it's my fault", he admitted, insisting he is not the kind of manager to approach the club's owners and complain about his transfer kitty.

"You can not use him if he's not 100 percent. That's over now, we can not do that anymore, so we made that decision". It came up massively that it would be very hard if we say: "Here's your contract, you have to stay here" and to use him as a player in the second part of the season.

Kerber too strong for Barty in final
I have had a great week and the final was not easy against Ash. "I feel like I am getting closer to my 2016 level". A single break in the first set was enough for Kerber, who pulled clear from 3-3 in the second to win the trophy.

But questioned whether he could try to bring someone like Sanchez to replace Coutinho, Klopp said: "If we do something then it needs to be right decision, we don't have to replace him - what we have to do is step up".

Coutinho was linked with Barcelona in the summer, but stayed at Liverpool and scored 12 times in 20 appearances this season before his move to Spain. While Coutinho has become a very good player, he is not one who will be remembered as a Liverpool great alongside the likes of Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness or even Luis Suarez from the modern era. Really, it is a normal, normal thing and we have only to make the best of it. "You realise it happens but you can't start thinking 'What are we going to do now that Phil is not here?' It can't be that at all". He was not ready to do that anymore. "You will probably know before I do".

Klopp says that Liverpool won't make insane things in January to replace Coutinho.

He reflected that Liverpool's game "worked with Phil really well, sometimes not" and that without him it worked "really well, sometimes not" but said they "don't have to think about that" now he has gone.

"I welcome Pep Guardiola, his players, staff, officials and supporters of Manchester City to Anfield", the 50-year-old in his column for This is Anfield, as quoted by the club's official website. But we will not make insane things. We had fantastic games with him and not so good games with him. It looks good - he wears football boots, that is always a good sign.
