Philippe Coutinho's Move To Barcelona, Bad For Premier League- Eden Hazard

Have Barcelona lost trust in La Masia?

"It was his dream (to move to Barcelona) and there was a moment when we had to accept that".

Juventus are planning to use Philippe Coutinho's massive £143 million move from Liverpool to Barcelona as the "benchmark" for any move related to Paulo Dybala, according to reports.

Jurgen Klopp suspects Liverpool may have "suffered a little too much" over losing big players in the past and will not do anything "crazy" to replace Philippe Coutinho.

Roberto is known for his flexibility and is fit for playing in the two positions which is something that Klopp is searching for.

'It's good for him, ' Hazard told Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport. It's not that there was an open question or something and in the end 50 per cent pro, 50 per cent contra and I had to make the decision.

"The fact is he has gone now and we have to think 'What have we got that is going to get the job done?'".

Though City has won 19 of its last 20 Premier League matches, Liverpool has not lost in the last 15 meetings at Anfield against the Blues.

"You lose the grip. That's over now, we can not do that anymore, so we made that decision".

"It would have been very hard if we had said, which we could have done, "look, here is your contract and you have to stay here", and to use him in the second half of the season".

"I don't want to sound disrespectful, he was here for five years, we will miss him. We don't have to replace him, we have to step up", Klopp said.

The Reds finally had to relinquish their hold on Coutinho earlier this week when the midfielder was finally granted his dream move to Barcelona. "No chance. He was not ready to do that anymore".

"It is actually scary as look at the actual amount of goals he scores, but also look at the amount of goals he missed - one versus one, not easy goals at the end of the day, because they are not easy". We'll have 11 players and we played fantastic football without Phil. Coutinho had four years left on his contract at Anfield, he was cup-tied for Barcelona's European games and they didn't need him to win the league, as they're nine points clear at the top of the table.

"I haven't really even thought about Phil leaving", Oxlade-Chamberlain said ahead of Sunday's visit of Premier League leaders Manchester City. He is a player of Leipzig, that's what I know and will be here in the summer, that's what I know as well. Always they were a good and stable team. Until the City game, I think we were level and after that game we struggled a bit and City obviously used the momentum.
