Jurgen Klopp has told Liverpool’s players to all get behind Philippe Coutinho after his failed transfer move to Barcelona from Liverpool, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is claiming that the Reds boss wants his squad to welcome the 25-year-old Brazilian back to the fold at Melwood after the close of the summer transfer window.

Coutinho’s future was a relentless source of speculation throughout the summer transfer window but a move failed to materialise despite the playmaker having handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through a move to Barcelona.

The Brazil international is preparing to report back to Melwood as Liverpool gear up for their Premier League clash against Manchester City on Saturday lunchtime.

And according to the report, Klopp is keen for Coutinho to be integrated back into first-team affairs at Anfield as quickly as possible.

The same story says that Klopp will assess Coutinho before making a decision as to whether to include him in the squad for the clash against Manchester City.

Liverpool thrashed Arsenal 4-0 without Coutinho in their most recent top-flight game.
