Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho admits Barcelona interest was 'complicated'

Sky Sports Pundit Criticises Emre Can After Abject Showing in Disappointing Burnley Draw

Philippe Coutinho has insisted he has not struck an agreement to join Barcelona next season and has pledged his total commitment to Liverpool.

On Saturday, Coutinho made his first start of the Premier League season but failed help his side avoid a 1-1 draw against Burnley.

The 25-year-old Brazil global was Barcelona's key transfer target but Liverpool rejected multiple bids from the La Liga side, saying the player was not for sale. "Liverpool are a great club".

The 25-year-old moved to Anfield from Southampton in a deal costing a reported £34m in the summer of 2016.

Barcelona have reportedly turned their attention to Liverpool star Sadio Mane following their failed pursuit of Philippe Coutinho. But it is also a great honour being here. The Brazil worldwide, given a rousing reception when he returned as a substitute against Sevilla in midweek, was the subject of three failed bids from Barcelona during the summer transfer window and submitted a transfer request in an attempt to force a move from Anfield.

He explained: "What happened was that I received an offer for work and, in life, sometimes you're interested and sometimes not".

"But it is also a great honour being here". In this case, like you all know, I was interested.

Coutinho said that he was now focused on performing for Liverpool and Brazil national team but admitted that the transfer saga was a hard moment for him. As I have said, in life, in every job you get an offer, interested or not.

"I'm in a place that I've always been respected by everyone and I've respected everyone too, through this four, five years I've never had any problems with anybody here", he said.

I have to work.

"Not that I know of", said Coutinho. I wonder if the manager is sitting there this morning thinking, 'is my back-four good enough to go where I want to go with this team?'
