Philippe Coutinho Won't Be Replaced in January Window

Philippe Coutinho Won't Be Replaced in January Window

"We can stop thinking about it".

Wagner and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp have a friendship off the pitch, but the former has insisted that he will focus exclusively on inspiring his team to a win at the John Smith's Stadium.

"Of course the pressure increases in a situation like this, the pressure we make on ourselves, but that's how it is".

"It's not about replacing players - it's about using our own opportunities and our own tools, players, tactics, formations".

Jurgen Klopp has urged his Liverpool FC side to quickly dust themselves down following their FA Cup loss to West Brom as they focus on their Premier League trip to Huddersfield next week.

"It was not about creating chances it was about different stuff, different things". Long-term we will do a lot (in the transfer window).

Sport reckon he'll use this time to tell his friends how his first few days at the La Liga leaders were, what the city is like and how he was welcomed in the dressing room of the "best club in the world". He's a fantastic player but that was not the problem.

Coutinho left the Merseyside club for Barcelona this month in a deal worth 142 million pounds ($200 million) but Klopp insists the club will not look for short-term solutions in the transfer market.

Liverpool's 18-match unbeaten run was ended at Swansea City before they were knocked out of the FA Cup - their most realistic chance of silverware this season - by West Brom.

The Reds' main concern in the English top flight this season will be hanging on to fourth place as Tottenham Hotspur are just two points behind them.

"[Henderson] did really well when he came on, like Millie did", said Klopp.

With the transfer window open until Wednesday, there have been calls for Klopp to reinvest some of the money raised from Coutinho's sale in a replacement for the Brazilian.
