Klopp yields and confirms he cannot avoid Coutinho exit

Coutinho, who handed in a transfer request this week, is expected to leave Liverpool this summer. Jurgen Klopp has admitted that he has no influence over the Brazilian's decision.

Following Liverpool's 3-3 draw at Watford, Klopp spoke about Coutinho, claiming there is little he can do on the matter: 'I cannot say a lot about it', he said, when quizzed about the player's future. 'I am responsible for the whole team', he said.

'The reasons why the players are not available, I cannot have an influence on it', he said of Coutinho, who is eager to make the switch to the Camp Nou.

The Reds have already turned down two offers for the Brazil international, but it has not deterred Barcelona in the slightest. The La Liga outfit are determined to secure Coutinho's services and Klopp showed a nonresisting attitude to what is to come.

'I have to accept decisions from owners, that’s how it is. Sometimes players', Klopp said after the match at Vicarage Road. 'That is how it is. I am just concentrating on my team', he concluded.
