A lot of Liverpool fans can't help but feel a bit let down.

"It's a nightmare for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp", Reddknapp told Sky Sports.

There are also rumors swirling regarding Coutinho's future at the club with Barcelona reported to have bid around $120 million.

These Klopp comments on Coutinho, particularly the line "I have to accept decisions by owners" are those you would associate with a man who has been told that it is out of his hands, and that the owners may have chose to sell the player.

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has repeatedly said the club will not be selling the 25-year-old Coutinho, who has become a key player for the Premier League team and Brazil in recent years.

Barcelona want Coutinho to replace Neymar following his compatriot's 222 million-euro transfer to PSG last week.

In a statement yesterday, the club's owners said its "definitive stance" was that "no offers will be considered".

New Hornets boss Marco Silva had a good home record for Hull City last season including a 2-0 home win against Liverpool - a 2-0 Watford win is 35/1 at BetVictor.

"You have to ask them". A "family friend" of Liverpool's No10 was then quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "Philippe has tried very hard to find an amicable solution to the situation but to no avail".

"I think I've already said it a few times but maybe that's not 100 per cent clear".

Liverpool will now turn their attentions towards their crucial Champions League play-off clash against Hoffenheim on Tuesday night. "It's not about this, Phil is not available for us, that's the biggest issue that he's not available to play".

However, it is understood from a source close to the player that Coutinho is unhappy with the way Liverpool have handled the negotiations.

The Brazil global was missing with a back injury, according to Liverpool, although he might not have been in the right frame of mind to play anyway after handing in a transfer request on Friday in light of interest in the playmaker from Barcelona.
