Jurgen Klopp has today said that it is not a necessity to replace Philippe Coutinho this month, saying Liverpool will be alright without the Brazilian ace.

He further says Liverpool will be alright after Coutinho to Barcelona transfer.

Coutinho made a stunning £142 million change to the Catalan side prior in the month, leaving a void in the Liverpool side. 

From that point forward, there has been an objection for the 25-year-old to be supplanted by another best player, with different names mooted. 

Talking in his pre-Man City public interview on Friday, Klopp rushed to express that he won't bring another person in January. 

"There was no other choice (however to offer Coutinho)," Klopp told columnists. 

"The club had a go at everything to persuade Phil to remain here. It's reality when I say he cleared out Liverpool just for one club, Barcelona. There was a minute we needed to acknowledge that. 

"We don't need to supplant him, what we need to do is venture up. I would prefer not to sound impolite in light of the fact that he was five years here yet we just need to go ahead. 

"We will have 11 players, we've played phenomenal football without Phil." 

Klopp was gotten some information about the likeness of losing huge name players while at Dortmund. 

"We lost a lot of players at Dortmund. You generally need to respond. It's about the environment in the club. On the off chance that we get a free-kick on Sunday and anybody is thinking 'Phil!' that wouldn't be excessively cool. 

"Losing one player was never an issue [at Dortmund]." 

Klopp's remarks may not be met with all inclusive joy by Liverpool supporters, who are worried about Coutinho's exit hampering their best four and Champions League trusts. 

It is significant that the supervisor is never one to talk too sincerely in question and answer sessions – he asserted Coutinho may be fit to confront City a week ago! – so his remarks must be taken with a squeeze of salt. 

In the event that there isn't work being done on new players arriving, in any case, it would be a noteworthy astonishment. 

Klopp likewise talked about moves as a rule, with Daniel Sturridge's future not yet decided, saying he will never lose rest about the odd player taking off. 

"Until January 31 a considerable measure of things can occur in the exchange window. Not simply with Daniel," he included. 

It could be an intriguing couple of weeks.
