Coutinho: What would you do?
Honestly, as much as I love our little magician(as does my 8 year old), if Klopp decided to sell and £45-50 million, and find new blood, I would be OK with this. Coutinho is as brilliant as he is inconsistent.
Klopp has his own plan, his own ideas of how we will succeed, and is going to make sure that if he succeeds or fails, he will do so with his own style and team. He is the first manager we have had for a long time, that I believe will be allowed to buy who he wants to buy(within reason), without the people above pulling the strings.
I would love to keep Coutinho, but if he goes, I will get over it pretty fast, and start getting very excited for next season.
I’m torn on this one. He’s not worth £45 mil and that could get us two damn good players. He went missing after the Dortmund game and did nothing the rest of the season. You wouldn’t have known he was even playing against Sevilla. Yes he’s possibly the best player we have at the moment which shows where we are as a club. He’s no Suarez, Gerrard or even Torres. We lamented Sterling going but as far as I’m concerned we mugged City for a very average player who did squat last season. We couldn’t replace Suarez because he is world class and irreplaceable, Couthino is neither of those. Yes he is a good player who has given us some good moments and I like him. I just don’t see him as irreplaceable and as I’ve said £45m is possibly too hard to turn down.
We failed to sign star players but we can make them ourselves. However we must keep our best players before our youngsters become stars. Keeping our best players is our most important task in every transfer window.
We should simply tell those clubs like PSG etc that we will NOT sell Coutinho. At the same time, we should give Coutinho a new, long contract. He is only at 70k/week while Firmino is at 100k/week. We must tie him down.
May be, just may be, the PSG rumour is created by Coutinho’s agent. Anyway offering a new 5 years lucrative contract to Coutinho is reasonable and will only help the team.
