Klopp not worried about Coutinho to Barca

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that star playmaker Philippe Coutinho will not have his head turned by reported interest from Barcelona.

The Brazilian has been linked with a transfer to Spain as he continues to impress on Merseyside, but Klopp doesn’t see why he would leave the ambitious Reds.

"I am not concerned because I think Phil fits really well here and is comfortable here," Klopp said. "I think it is actually positive when there is interest. It shows it's good.

"Phil had a difficult time with injury, coming back fighting for his shape, and I would say that's normal.

"In the last three games, you can see immediately, when he is in a little bit of shape, how big the difference is he can have in a game.

"That's wonderful for us. But I am not concerned [about Barcelona] actually because we give the boys enough perspective that they really want to be part of this for the next few years."

The Reds are in Premier League action on Sunday when they face West Brom at the Hawthorns.
