Gini Wijnaldum Speaks On How Philippe Coutinho's Barcelona Saga Affected Liverpool Players

Philippe Coutinho is a regular for Liverpool again having been blocked from joining Barcelona during the summer

"I remember some of his runs against one of the senior players, who couldn't keep up with him".

There are suggestions that the Catalan giants will return with a formal offer in January but as we all know, that is a very hard window to negotiate so you would assume that if Liverpool opt to do business that it would be at the end of the season and not before.

Barca could reignite their interest in Coutinho in the future, but Wijnaldum is happy he stayed at Anfield. "But on the other side as team-mates you want him to stay because you know with Phil we'll be better".

Liverpool are seeking to end a frustrating September on a positive note as they face a reunion with their former manager Rafa Benitez at Newcastle on Sunday. "Someone was going to be disappointed at the end of the transfer window, and it was Phil", he added.

Liverpool have already been knocked out of the Carabao Cup and while their Champions League hopes appear to be slim, the FA Cup appears to be their most genuine chance of glory this season.

Coutinho, who is contracted until mid-2022, said he would give his all for Liverpool.

But even if he's able to keep a clean sheet this time around, there's still a decent chance we see a missed FG in this one. The Eagles, however, knotted the game up thanks to an Alex Henery kick and a 61-yard cannon from Vick to DeSean Jackson.

"Phil is a really good person and we understood why he wanted to make the move".

Jurgen Klopp knows very well that Liverpool has achieved a great step by keeping Philippe Coutinho last summer.

His Brazilian flair has lit up so many matches in the last four-and-a-half years, and with Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez both moving on, he has become Liverpool's talisman. "I'm here to defend the colours, to give my maximum" Coutinho said following the stalemate with Spartak Moscow, as reported in the Liverpool Echo.
