Philippe Coutinho misses Liverpool training ahead of Watford clash

Coutinho arrived at the Liverpool training ground earlier today but was not among the players on the pitch.

The Brazilian has been struggling with a back injury and is a major doubt for Saturday’s clash.

Coutinho has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona with a £90million offer rejected yesterday. Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp has been adamant the club will not sell their star player. In an interview with Sky Germany he said,

“Liverpool is not a club that has to sell players. That is set in stone. So what they pay in the end doesn’t matter.

“From a financial standpoint, there is no price limit to let him go. No price at which we are ready to give in.

“Our goal is to have the best possible team. So we want to keep our guys and add new ones. That is our plan.”
