Coutinho's Barcelona desire remains as he refuses to commit to Reds

Craig Bellamy

Did you enjoy Liverpool's thorough demolition of Spartak Moscow to secure their place in the Champions League knockout rounds for the first time since the 2008-09 season?

"I am at Liverpool and I always do my best when I have the opportunity to play, respecting the jersey and the supporters", he said in a recent interview.

'I do not know how the future is going to be.

The Brazil global has been largely deployed on the left of a front three alongside Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

"When it was 6-0", Klopp said, "we were looking at each other [on the Liverpool bench] and saying, 'How did this happen?'"

Liverpool's marquee player Philippe Coutinho was the subject of intense interest from Barcelona last summer, however a move never materialised in the end.

I'm very happy to play alongside all these great players.

Coutinho though chose his words carefully and reiterated that his desire was to move to Barcelona in the summer.

Speaking to the press ahead of the meeting with the Russians, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp played the non-committal card when asked about Coutinho's future and though he didn't completely rule out a January exit for the Brazilian, it's highly unlikely that the Reds hierarchy would allow him to up stakes in the middle of the season.

According to Betway representative Alan Algar, per Odds Bible, they were inundated with bets on Coutinho's uncertain future and so made a decision to shut it down. The storyline of the Liverpool attacking midfielder possibly moving to Barca dominated the summer transfer window as Liverpool rejected three big money bids from the Catalan club.

"After heightened betting activity on Thursday, running in line with reports a deal has been agreed, we've chose to suspend betting on the 24-year-old making the switch to the Nou Camp in the upcoming transfer window".
