It is quite clear that only an obscene amount will bring Keita to Liverpool.

Unless Keita decides to 'piss' on his current club then nothing is going to happen.


1.) 08 Jul 2017 02:25:36
Or He could just put in for a transfer and say he'd be unhappy to stay.

2.) 08 Jul 2017 07:18:07
Ralf Ragnick (RBL's Sporting Direct) has said that not even a 100m bid will make them sell Keita. I don't know what other hint that LFC and some on here need. Move on, pls.

3.) 08 Jul 2017 07:22:35
Yes but the CEO has said that he would not stand in Keitas way if he wanted to leave. This happens every transfer window, it's part of the song and dance. If people want to have faith that he's coming (I'm one of them) then fair play. If he doesn't come he doesn't come but I'm not getting in a negative mind state about it yet. I believe he will come.

4.) 08 Jul 2017 08:36:03
It was the same with Mane to Southampton. They also had a not for sale stance but in the end it was Mane who pulled the plug and forced the move.

Leipzig do not need money, they want to keep Keita because he is a vital player for them. The problem for Keita is that if he burns bridges with Leipzig and Liverpool fail to meet the asking price then Keita ends up losing and Liverpool face another tapping up situation.

Very dangerous game to play for both Keita and Liverpool. This is all going to come down to Keita forcing his way out.

5.) 08 Jul 2017 08:46:58
He is not coming chaps and sounds like if we continue to push then we msy be reported to FIFA on the grounds of more tapping up. I can not beleive our club are still monitoring or what ever it is we are doing, certainly no bid has gone in. Wasting time that could be used chasing other CM's, CB's and LB's.

6.) 08 Jul 2017 08:50:29
I can not believe how bad we are in the transfer market. Between the apology and getting highly inflated prices we are crippled. I know klopp says to be patient but I would of liked players a part of preseason so they better get a move on. We need 3 more players. A good left back. A centre back and a top striker.

We also need to shift sakho, Moreno karius.

It's ok for klopp to say this but he has always been an advocate of early business and getting players settled in preseason so I can not help but feel our current team could be it going into the season.

7.) 08 Jul 2017 09:17:12
Liverpool have mucked it up again with Keita just like they did with VVD.

It has been made known that Keita wants to join Liverpool without Liverpool approaching Leipzig. End game for Liverpool = tapping up.

It will be best for Liverpool to move on from Keita. Obviously the club ain't learning and play with fire, you will get burned.

Why are FSG not putting an end to this matter? They need to show authority as the circus will be on display again at Anfield if this continues. Clear lack of leadership at the club!

It is too late for Liverpool to approach Leipzig now. They should have done it from the start instead of warming up to the player i. e. the same situation as VVD. FIFA will have a field day.

8.) 08 Jul 2017 09:27:29
Stop getting carried away with the tapping up stuff.
Mistakes have been made but the Keita deal is a typical transfer with us wanting the player and willing to pay what is required to secure his services. PSG want Coutinhio doesn't mean they tapping him up by declaring an interest and every player has a price tag these days it's how football is.

Mistakes were made with VVD but if he submits a transfer request then he will leave Southampton.

Everton didn't want to sell lukaku but Chelsea and united both went in with large offers, both bid the same fee but united played the smart move by tipping the agent more.

Keita wants the move so it will happen, no doubt about it.

9.) 08 Jul 2017 09:45:02
Redx what are you talking about? you make me want to bang my head against a wall.

You call this a mistake? no mate a mistake is when you step on somebodys toe, fart when somebodys eating, accidentally pop a kids balloon or send a text to the second misses when it was meant to be the other, not when you tap up a player, how is that a mistake? The club knew exactly what they were doing it's no mistake it's plain and simple stupid! No wonder we're getting carried away with it. Some of us care about the image of Liverpool.

I can't get my head about how some people can defend these actions, it NEVER happened before so why is it ok to do such things now? it's made us look disgraceful. What winds me up either more is comments like ' every club does it' no they dont! - there's a reason why we are the only ones in the news for it.

10.) 08 Jul 2017 09:48:17
Redx, it is laughable that you bring the Lukaku situation into this. Both Chelsea and UTD have made offers for Lukaku. That is the difference. There have been no stories flying about of Lukaku making it known that he wants to join UTD.

Liverpool have not even approached Leipzig yet Keita has spoken to his club about wanting to move to Liverpool.

You clearly do not understand the severity of the situation.

11.) 08 Jul 2017 10:05:22
Stop the daily obsession with Keita it's getting boring!

12.) 08 Jul 2017 10:30:38
I have never seen such an obsession on these pages over such a run of the mill player.

People talk about him like he is a seasoned veteran with 3 CL titles or something. There is absolutely no perspective here. The hype band wagon is fully loaded up with people convinced he is world class.

Maybe he is, or will be. However you only have to look at Leicester for plenty of examples as to why you don't pay big bucks for players after one good season in a mid table team. Chelsea took a £30m risk on Kante which paid off. Yet look at the likes of Kasper, Huth, Morgan, Drinkwater, Mahrez, King, Vardy etc. They were all lauded as top class players. Mahrez was apparently world class and there were talks of £80m bids from Barcelona! The same is currently happening with every Leipzig player. In reality, maybe one or two of their players are actually the meat, and the rest are just bone.

Keita may be the Kante of the team, who knows. But if even Kante was only valued at £30m after a stunning season in the Premier League in which he actually won the title, how is Keita worth double or as some reports suggest, triple that figure after a single season in which he failed to push his team on to the title?

It is clear Keita is a good player. Nobody can say how good though. It is purely speculation, prediction and assumption. He could be a Kante, or he could be a Drinkwater. If the figure was £30m I'd say take the punt. But £70-100m? And some people are trying to justify it? I'm still not buying it.

Then we have the cheek to laugh at United paying mega bucks for Pogba and Lukaku! Oh the irony.

Move on people. There are 1,000s of midfielders in Europe and I'm sure Keita is not the best option. Certainly not at the £100m RBLs chairman just suggested!

13.) 08 Jul 2017 11:41:18
Keita will sign.

Poker need to stop banging on about tapping up. It's is rife in football and other team sports. Part of business I'm afraid. Business isn't all sunshine and rainbows and if you think that it is then the world must be a very rosey place for you to live with your unicorn and pixies.

Even 'legitimate' deals have add ons, agent incentives and gifts. united and Chelsea bid the same figure for lukaku except the agent got a lot more from the united offer. so that's where his client is heading.

We have yet to be punished for any transfer outside our youth system and if it does come it shall be probably as severe as Ashley cole disgrace for Chelsea.

But until then pipe down about it all cos we will be signing Keita. possibly as early as next week. Let's support the lad and the team.

I agree with you MK about the price but this summer most transfers for teams in champions league will be inflated.

{Ed025's Note - tapping up is not "part of business" redx, its cheating and bribery and very wrong so dont try to condone it mate..

14.) 08 Jul 2017 11:50:10
Not condoning it but I'm not naive enough to think it's isolated to lfc.

{Ed002's Note - You are right - it is everybody else's fault. Pitiful.}

15.) 08 Jul 2017 11:59:55
Sorry ed are you saying that only LFC have ever done this or been accused? Liverpool have received no punishment besides the youth. Only prem team I can think of actually being severely punished for it is Chelsea.

Mark my words Keita will sign and no tapping up allegations will be made either so chill out. Boom.

{Ed025's Note - all im saying mate is that you dont want the name of LFC to be tainted any more than it is now and saying that other clubs act in this despicable way does not make it right..

16.) 08 Jul 2017 12:02:22
If it continues we deserve a ban. Maybe getting away with it so frequently hasn't taught us anything?

17.) 08 Jul 2017 12:09:10
Ed025 I agree with you 100% mate but RB have not and will not be making a complaint about Keita pal.

{Ed025's Note - maybe not redx, maybe more luck than judgement but i do agree with you that it should be dropped now as its getting repetitive..i would sooner concentrate on the players your not signing mate.. :)

18.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed002's Note - You need to understand that within European football Liverpool's behavior is worse than any other club. You clearly don't know anything of the Chelsea situation otherwise you would not have made such a stupid remark. You also seem to ignore the fact that a very significant fine was handed out to Everton for tapping up, and indeed that Liverpool are already serving one ban at the moment and have a pending court case that could have further repercussions. The last season the Liverpool were in Europe they faced more charges with UEFA than any other side. On two occasions the owners and the board have had to issue humiliating apologies to try and avoid charges - and one of those has not been withdrawn. Klopp deliberately unsettled players by taking several journalists aside and briefing them in order to deliberately unsettle the four targets he was sure he could sign this summer. Klopp made illegal and direct approaches to three of those players - that is tapping up. The club is not one of the "elite" European sides that meet a couple of times a year and plan the future - they are excluded from that. Certain clubs will not do business with Liverpool because of the way they behave. Liverpool need to sort their act out or they need to accept there are potentially very serious consequences. Right now they are bottom of the pile in European football.}

19.) 08 Jul 2017 12:15:36
Hahah I agree Ed025, we can talk about left backs now!

{Ed025's Note - yeah mate, robertson could be your marquee signing..i hope.. :)

20.) 08 Jul 2017 13:04:49
Hahah ed025 he will arrive I think as cover but who knows he may be the man for the job.

21.) 08 Jul 2017 13:58:37
I just don't know anymore, fans or so called fans are delusional.

22.) 08 Jul 2017 14:01:12
Hi Eds
Why is this kind of under the radar? I know it's done to death on here, but media wise you don't really see anything about tapping up. Obviously the VVD was well reported, but this has been going on for at lot longer. Just interested.

{Ed025's Note - because contrary to what people think on here its not that common mate, tapping up is quite serious and if the press get wind of it they are all over it like a bun on a boloni sandwitch, but most clubs play by the rules as far as im aware janmo..

23.) 08 Jul 2017 14:17:26
Thanks for the swift response. I find it really frustrating that all the hard work we have put in getting back into the champions league, and we could go in under cooked. If you want a player just put a decent bid in. Thanks great site.

{Ed025's Note - no worries mate..

24.) 08 Jul 2017 14:39:36
Teabag why is it delusional to think Keita will be a Liverpool player?

Enough people want to bad mouth Liverpool transfer activity on here yet RB have not and will not be making a complaint and Keita will sign for us.

all parties will be happy with the outcome.

{Ed002's Note - How do you know that they will not make a complaint. They don't wish to sell a player who Liverpool have illegally approached and tapped up. You are an idiot.}

25.) 08 Jul 2017 15:39:54
This is the longest repeat active thread I have seen on here for a while xD

I don’t see why we need to 'tap-up' players. But if we are that desperate and stupid why don’t we do it the smart way like Barca?
By this I mean Neymar has tried to convince Coutinho to join them and spoke to the press about him a lot.
We should get a player to do it then the club can be like "well he really likes him, not our fault" xD.

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool have already used a player to tap up others on behalf of the club - and not even players he knew. So that is worse.}

26.) 08 Jul 2017 20:21:29
Would be good but costs way too much.

27.) 08 Jul 2017 23:09:28
Every club that Mourinho managed tried to sign Gerrard.

On international duty Lampard and Terry were full time in his ear.

Fergie tried twice to sign him; same crack as above with Scholes and Neville in his ear.

Yap Stam told everyone in his book that Fergie had illegally approached him.
Thats why Fergie offloaded him.

The list could go on and on and not just transfers.

The russians doping scandle.

Look at Platini, Beckenbaur, Quatar The scams at Rangers involving players trusts.

The chairnan at Marseilles i think was jailed .

Even Ed mentioned about a champs league match that was suspicious.

I'd say there are many more as well but football is now big business and companies and clubs will try and do what they can to gain an advantage.

They all are guided by the 11th commandment.

28.) 09 Jul 2017 16:24:11
Thanks for the reply ed002 I didn’t even realize that xD
Seriously how stupid are we? If you are going to tap players up with other players, DO IT RIGHT (or just not at all) ridiculous how stupid we are with transfers

I get that the whole of football is corrupt but most teams/ managers/ players stop and stay low once in the limelight, yet we just carry on doing it like nothing bad will happen -. -.

29.) 10 Jul 2017 11:25:28
I might be miss remembering this but didn't the FA .................




24 Jun 2017 10:42:38
Ed002, any interest from Liverpool for Gaetan Laborde?


{Ed002's Note - I don't know of Liverpool interest in Gaetan Laborde. He is seen as a very average striker in France and there is a different Bordeaux player that Liverool has been keen on. Laborde is far from a regular goalscorer.}

1.) 24 Jun 2017 11:02:18
Is that Malcolm? Do we look like making an offer?

{Ed002's Note - Malcom - there has been a lot of interest from Liverpool.}

2.) 24 Jun 2017 11:03:13
Malcolm I assume Ed?

{Ed002's Note - Yes, Malcom.}

3.) 24 Jun 2017 11:04:19
Thanks Ed002.

4.) 24 Jun 2017 11:11:59
"Course you can Malcom! "
See how many oldies remember that line.

{Ed001's Note - I am obviously too young.....}

5.) 24 Jun 2017 12:18:58
Sadly I do . Vicks sinex.

6.) 24 Jun 2017 12:39:28
My dad still says it now! Im sure he would have preferred me to be called Malcolm.

7.) 24 Jun 2017 13:10:44
I don't know much about Malcom, but was he another alternative to the left winger? If so, the interest in this window must surely be gone now with the deal for Salah, am i right?

{Ed002's Note - I wouldn't think that Klopp would keep looking for more players in that position but given he will be playing at least one out of position then maybe. Or maybe he is interested in a striker who struggles for goals?}

8.) 24 Jun 2017 13:13:01
And me too.

9.) 24 Jun 2017 13:40:03
Malcom as left back. LOL.

10.) 24 Jun 2017 19:45:24
Gaetan Laborde? Sounds like the name of a drag act!
I still believe that Bobby Firmino will remain as our preferred striking option, with Sturridge and Solanke as back up/ cup players. I don't think Klopp really needs much more up front, he just needs to sort out the defence.



07 Jun 2017 17:38:08
Ed002, know of anything about the rumour of Sturridge being offered to Newcastle?


{Ed002's Note - I don't but Newcastle have already reached agreement to take a striker on loan.}

1.) 07 Jun 2017 17:52:38
Th Young st from Chelsea I'm I right.

{Ed002's Note - Abraham.}



05 Jun 2017 18:09:57
This could be the season where Liverpool smash the budget into pieces to once and for all get back to the top.

Scary stuff but if that is what the club is planning on doing then us fans will just go with the flow.

I just wonder who the club tends on seeing going as the figures we are about to spend will have to see more than one current players on their way. Let's hope it ain't Coutinho.


1.) 05 Jun 2017 18:40:22
I'm not concerned with the earlier fees at all as the game has somewhat changed, not just for us but the Premier League. The influx of TV money in the premier league, on top of the additional revenue we will provided by the Champions League (if we qualify) has me fairly chill about this issue. Don't think the club would also sign a CB and LW to cope with the departure of PC and we've been surprisingly quiet this summer with regards to 'Number 10' rumours.

2.) 05 Jun 2017 18:50:22
Likely to be: Sakho, Lucas, Stewart, Markovich, Moreno.

Personally also wouldn't be overly surprised by any one (s) of: Sturridge, Ojo, Ward, Ings, Klavan, Gomez, Milner, Coutinho (😩)

3.) 05 Jun 2017 19:09:23
Say with the likely there puzzled would raise £50 million to pay VVDs fee and the saving of wages. I'd like to see Ward, Gomez and Ings loaned out for fitness and experience. I'd like Sturridge and Couts stay. I do like Milner and he should stay as a good squad player but I think he will want 1st team action so may leave.

4.) 05 Jun 2017 19:10:46
I do not believe many understand how club finaces work. We earned massively the previous seasons from TV revenue and still Liverpool ended up making a significant loss in the last financials.

The new training facility will have to see Liverpool making up the numbers financially elsewhere. Increasing the wage bill considerably with the arrivals of VVD and Salah will punish the club.

You do understand that the wage bill makes up majority of Liverpool's spend each season? Therefore adding over £300k a week to our current wage bill 3rd highest in the League will have to see some of the current crop leave.

Transfer fees not the main issue as they get paid over a period, not in one go.

Lallana, Firmino, Mane and Gini can all play number ten. Even Salah.

5.) 05 Jun 2017 18:55:10
Gomez loan
Origi maybe in January
Wilson loan

Should be around £100m. So if all goes to plan we might still get a left back and one other. Happy days.

6.) 05 Jun 2017 19:30:41
Mark, it does not matter what we will be selling players for. The transfer fees we receive will not be paid in one go to us. We are probably some way off before Bournemouth finish paying for Ibe. Just like Suarez was only paid up by Barcelona this past season.

Our wage bill though is something which sees the club accounts with an exit of funds every week. Add VVD and Salah to the current bill, you can be rest assured that there will have to be quite a few exits in the summer, especially if we are planning on adding more players.



04 Jun 2017 06:49:41
Never heard of the player but Liverpool are reportedly eyeing a move for Anderlecht's Polish striker Lukasz Teodorczyk.


1.) 04 Jun 2017 08:41:57
As you would say, the Eds have repeatedly stated that interest on Merseyside is from Everton ;)




maxlfc's banter posts with other poster's replies to maxlfc's banter posts


18 Aug 2017 16:00:45
So apparently a 3rd bid for Coutinho has been rejected. Maybe Barcelona have finally got the hint that Coutinho is not for sale? The reported £114m offer is massive. Coutinho will have no option but to get on with life at Anfield if that is the case. Liverpool clearly do not want to sell.

Regarding our defensive issues, Klopp not going to change his stance on seeing attacking football being displayed on the pitch.

What we probably need to see is a different approach regarding our defensive training?

It is not like City have the best CB's in the League and neither do Arsenal.

More awareness is needed at set pieces which is our biggest problem. Our players switch off at set pieces for some reason?


1.) 18 Aug 2017 16:15:52
Funny how after Neymar and £200 million, an offer for £113 doesn't sound half as big as it would have a couple months ago.

2.) 18 Aug 2017 16:19:14
The fact Klopp has spent 17 million on 5 players (3 defenders and 2 keepers) might suggest why our defence hasn't improved. Agree that we switch off at set pieces but Watfords centre forward ran our defence ragged in open play last week also.

3.) 18 Aug 2017 18:30:58
Hoffenheim had a pretty easy time against our defenders too and but for their poor form up front could have easily had at least a draw, they were very poor up front luckily for us.



17 Aug 2017 16:53:19
I think Coutinho is between a rock and a hard place at the moment as Liverpool hold the power.

If Barcelona do not knock on the door and make an offer which is acceptable then Coutinho ain't going anywhere. We could very well see Coutinho becoming the second most expensive player ever, that is if Barcelona are willing to go that far. .

Once the window is shut, Coutinho is still at Anfield, will he be able to keep on sulking?

Tick tock.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 17:03:11
I don't know mate, but one things for sure.
There's no 'Back Injury'

2.) 17 Aug 2017 18:01:35
Yip, we may just have to put up with the 'back injury' situation until the window has shut.

3.) 17 Aug 2017 18:14:59
If he's still here after the window is shut he'll have no choice but to get his head down and play. Refusing to play (I don't think he'll do this) or sulking will just jeopardise his World Cup chances.

Most likely both him and the club will engage in the fiction that things are a-ok for a season and then he'll look to leave again.

4.) 17 Aug 2017 18:18:53
The Ed's have said he does have a bad back.

5.) 17 Aug 2017 19:12:51
Maybe Couts is just like our starting 11. He's got a weak spine.

6.) 18 Aug 2017 08:31:48
Why is it a fiction that al is ok? People do want to assume the worst. He wants to go to Barcelona. No other clubs are in his options or so far been mentioned as in his plans. That alone shows what waffle the not happy for months stuff is. From all the evidence there is more chance he will knuckle down and play on than he will be a problem. If he was desperate to leave, hated Klopp, hated the club etc he wouldn't have signed that contract, exta money or not. Also the way the club aren't rubbishing him shows a good attitude on their side and a belief he will get stuck in if stays. So far I still see this as a Barcelona or he stays and wants to play for LFC. The rest just comes across as people with a gain from him moving are stirring it via media.



16 Aug 2017 19:09:32
I might be horrible but hello TAA, goodbye Clyne. It was bound to happen. Clyne simply not good enough and being shown up by an 18 year old. Hopefully we will see some some more changes in our defence before the window shuts.

Good to see Macca sharing info again. Think we are in for an interesting two weeks and a bit to come.



1.) 16 Aug 2017 19:35:42
Alexander the Great,

2.) 16 Aug 2017 19:32:05
Clyne on the left.

3.) 16 Aug 2017 19:33:57
What did Macca say? Was it in past few days?

4.) 16 Aug 2017 19:32:05
Clyne on the left.

5.) 16 Aug 2017 20:05:55
How about no, Clyne will just be out on the left running up and down the pitch again with zero impact.

Robertson should be ready sooner or later.

6.) 16 Aug 2017 21:01:54
TAA going forward miles better but Clyne is still ahead defensively by some way due to his experience playing that position. No doubt TAA will improve and be a huge player for us for many years to come. TAA just need to keep his head down and focus and he will become world class.

7.) 16 Aug 2017 21:40:42
Guys let's just let the lad develop we've lost so many young right backs over the years that we thought were going to be the right back for next ten years and it hasn't happened.

Kelly, Flannaghan and Rob Jones allspring to mind.



15 Aug 2017 20:38:37
Nothing explosive from Liverpool but we are in control of the match.

TAA has just sent massive shivers down Clyne's spine. TAA has shown what we require from a RB. IMPACT. What a goal son and I will be pissed if TAA gets dropped for Clyne when TAA is delivering what a RB should be doing.

Mignolet has a predator instinct. Read the strike and saved the penalty.

Overall I enjoyed the shape of our performance. Nothing spectacular.

Let's just call it effective :-)


1.) 15 Aug 2017 20:53:31
Even taking out the goal, Trent has really highlighted Clyne's shortcomings in the last game and a half.

Everything Trent does is positive. He gets the ball, the head is up straight away he looks to go forward with it, either himself, or by playing in a team-mate. He gets it, he thinks "can I get a cross in? " "Have I space to move into? " "Can I pick out a diagnol run around the box? " "Can I get it down the side of the defender for Salah? ".

Clyne's a decent enough footballer technically, but his approach is safe and negative. He gets the ball, he stops, and he goes sideways or backwards nearly every time. Strangles our play. Trent only goes sideways or backwards if he has to.

There is no way Clyne should be restored as first choice unless he improves a lot when covering games Trent is rested in.



15 Aug 2017 18:07:23
Too many doom mongers at the moment along with fans getting their panties twisted.

As Ed001 and Ed002 have suggested, they expect more signing to happen. Nothing is guaranteed though.

Plus drawing our opening match is not the end of the world.

Just breathe people otherwise you may loose too many brain cells.


1.) 15 Aug 2017 18:12:23
It's not the fact that we drew but the flaccid way that we conceded goals. Nothing has changed from last year.

2.) 15 Aug 2017 18:46:19
People are allowed their own opinions Max.

3.) 15 Aug 2017 20:34:50
true, but when you have some posters leaving four, five or more messages a day pretty much saying the same thing it becomes a bore and far from constructive.

If the club decides Coutinho is going nowhere and goes on and refuses to play for us then I will loose all respect. Then he can rot.

Suarez spat out his dummy when he found out he was not leaving immediately but still gave his all on the pitch irrespective of him being miff.

No to any Barcelona player which is surplus thank you very much.

Luckily LFC have zero interest in Barcelona players :-)

FSG + Benitez = ice cold water into a pot of boiling hot oil.

It ain't going to happen. Benitez had his time at Liverpool so let sleeping dogs lie.

I highly doubt another bid would have been made so soon with the Dembele offer being waved away.

"We understand Barca’s latest offer was €85m (£77m) up front plus €15m (£13m) in add-ons"

That is a vast amount of cash up front :-O

It is clear Liverpool want to keep Coutinho.

It has nothing to do with being Brendaned. Majority of teams play with inverted wingers with attacking fullbacks to provide the width.

The days of wingers hugging the touchline is something that is being seen less and less.

I do not believe we have asked about Rakatic at any point. We have had no interest in any Barcelona player in this window.

Barca may have offered Rakatic to Liverpool and probably said hell no straight away.

Based on last season for me it would have to be

De Gea
Coleman Alderweireld Vertonghen Bertrand
Kante Dembele
Mane Coutinho De Bruyne

Coutinho will have to pull up his socks, like Suarez did when LFC decided he was not going to be sold straight away.

Coutinho will just be doing harm to himself if he continues to sulk and will end up being fined depending on how far he takes things and eventually being let nowhere near the first team. Liverpool still do not have to sell him even if he becomes the devil as he signed a long term binding contract with the club last season. I doubt he wants to end up like Sakho.

Deano, If Coutinho stays the onus will be on him to show up for training and get onto the pitch to do what he does best, play football.

The club is still paying his wages, he signed a very expensive and binding contract. Liverpool do not have to sell Coutinho if they do not want to. Both parties will have to adhere to their side of the contract. If Coutinho goes on a tangent and causes unrest, he will be dealt with.
