Coutinho Shocks Liverspool FC, Hands In Transfer Request

Jordan Henderson will look to lead Liverpool into a new era of success

On Wednesday, the Reds rejected a 100 million euros bid (£90 million) from Barcelona for the 25-year-old, who is out of today's trip to Watford with injury.

"That's the way it will go and there's nothing else to say about this".

Barcelona's follow-up bid came after the Merseyside club first rejected a £72m offer for the Brazil worldwide last month.

I don't expect Watford to allow Liverpool to hit them on the break and expect to see a solid Hornets performance with all-eyes on Nathaniel Chalobah, who has been nibbled at in the betting to make Gareth Southgate's squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation and is 4/1 to make the Three Lions squad from 5/1 with BetVictor.

Liverpool are heading into the brand new Premier League campaign with star player Philippe Coutinho's future still hanging in the balance.

But Coutinho has issued Liverpool with an official transfer request following the owners' statement that he is not for sale, according to Sky sources.

Jamie Carragher admits he is "surprised" Philippe Coutinho has handed in a transfer request but still does not believe Liverpool will let the player leave this summer.

A win for Liverpool in their Premier League debut would be a much-needed confidence booster and help settle the starting line-up ahead of the upcoming (and crucial) Champions League clash against Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

"I had to sell a lot of players in my managerial career", Klopp said. It's like how we do it.

"It's like how we try to do it".

Scoring goals wasn't a problem for Liverpool at Vicarage Road despite the absence of unsettled playmaker Philippe Coutinho but the visitors couldn't keep them out either, showing lessons haven't been learnt from last season. "But you can not come up, close to the start of the season and things like this".

"The club is bigger than anybody".

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, but many fans are now quoting and referring to a seemingly positive tweet that Coutinho shared with his followers back in January 2013. It's about doing it in the right moment. That is how I understand. Maybe everybody has a price - in the right moment.
