Liverpool wantaway Coutinho reports for training

Liverpool wantaway Coutinho reports for training

Going in to the 1-1 draw with Colombia on Tuesday evening, Selecao boss Tite confirmed that the 25-year old was ready to play a full 90-minutes. The Lunchtime kickoff's start would make it hard for players flying back on commercial flights to be on time for.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists the situation with Philippe Coutinho is "all good" after speaking with the wantaway playmaker on his return from worldwide duty.

Pele and Ronaldinho have reassured fans Philippe Coutinho is committed to Liverpool, amid fears the summer transfer drama involving Barcelona could affect his performances.

Jurgen Klopp described Philippe Coutinho's return to Liverpool training as "really promising", but stressed he still needs to regain his fitness.

Coutinho has yet to play for Liverpool in competitive games this season but turned out for Brazil in both World Cup qualifiers over the global break.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have all been excellent so far this season so I think we'll see Klopp stick with those three in attack meaning Coutinho may have to make do with a place on the bench for now.

The playmaker made a miraculous recovery from an apparent back injury to play for Brazil during the worldwide break so he is match-fit and he took part in full training today, however, Klopp has no reason to rush Coutinho back in to the starting eleven.

'We have now to continue with the pre-season, not too long, but in a few sessions we have to give ourselves the time because in the next month we have seven games.

"We always have the same decision to make, 'does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff", said Klopp.

Ever increasing bids were simply met with the same mantra from the EPL club - Not or Sale, even though the fee Barcelona offered would have been sufficient for Liverpool to add three or four more players to their squad.

Klopp may have little reason to worry about getting Coutinho straight back into the side with his attackers in such fine form, and he's admitted he's not convinced the playmaker is ready to return right away.
