Former Newcastle Star Slams Klopp for Starting Klavan Against Man City

Guardiola Aguero and Jesus have a top relationship

The Reds' impressive start to the season was brought to a sudden halt as they slumped to a 5-0 Premier League defeat after Sadio Mane was sent off at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.

Coutinho missed Liverpool's opening league fixtures and their Champions League qualifiers due to a back injury but featured in Brazil's 2018 World Cup qualifying matches.

Jurgen Klopp has tended to favour Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren as his centre-back pairing this season in both the Premier League and Champions League, something that Barton clearly feels the German should go back to for Liverpool's next game against Sevilla.

'When I was here, no one in Europe really knew too much about us until we reached the final in 2005. If you want to blame me for the decision (not to play Coutinho) then no problem.

"He opted for Milner, the team was winning the games and we did not compete in European competition, so we did not need so many rotations".

"It was a decision made with the season in mind, he came back from a long flight, after two substitute appearances and three weeks without training", Klopp added.




But he did play twice for Brazil in the recent worldwide break and rejoined his Reds team-mates in training at Melwood late last week.

"Phil is a fantastic player, and hopefully we can use him as quickly as possible".

"So we thought "Let's give him three or four days' proper training - and then he's available for us which is good news".

"We have to take the first 20 minutes and how we played before the worldwide break and take it into the next game", said the Belgium global.

Former Liverpool man Luis Garcia, who was part of the Reds team that won the Champions League in Istanbul in 2005, believes Jurgen Klopp must end the club's trophyless run this term.
