  • Sky Sports Pundit Criticises Emre Can After Abject Showing in Disappointing Burnley Draw

The Senegalese global cost Liverpool just £11.8 million when he was signed from Southampton, three years ago, but you get the impression that if Liverpool can be persuaded to part company with the player he will cost Barcelona an terrible lot more than that.

"What happened was a job offer and, in life, sometimes you get interested".

"It was a complicated month for me, but like I said I'm here now".

"It was a hard month for me, but now it's all over and I must focus on having a good season, helping my team, thinking about Liverpool and the national team", he continued.

"I've always respected Liverpool, the fans, the players and their board members".

'It's an honour to receive an offer from this club [Barcelona] but it is also an honour playing for Liverpool, I've always respected the club and the supporters'.

"But it's also a great honour being here, Liverpool is great club worldwide". In this case, like you all know, I was interested.

"I've never had any problems with anyone here".

It wouldn't be too controversial to say right now that Sadio Mane is Liverpool's most important player.

"Like I said, in every job you get an offer, you get interested or not".

When asked whether he felt hurt with the way events turned out, Coutinho insists the ordeal is in the past and that he is focusing on having a successful 2017-18 season.

"So what I can do is work hard and honour that on the field". "In the end, I have to help my team".

Coutinho was one of seven changes made by manager Jurgen Klopp from the team that drew 2-2 against Sevilla in midweek.
