Coutinho was said to have been in tears over his failed move to Camp Nou, despite Liverpool consistently stating the player was not for sale during the market window.

The Brazilian was one of ten Liverpool players who returned to the club following the conclusion of their worldwide duties, as Jurgen Klopp's side started their preparations for their clash against Manchester City on Saturday, as per the Liverpool Echo.

The 25-year-old has been training with his Liverpool team-mates at Melwood on Thursday after having returned from worldwide duty with Brazil. The Lunchtime kickoff's start would make it hard for players flying back on commercial flights to be on time for.

Brazil legend Ronaldinho has had his say on Liverpool's Philippe Coutinho.

Ronaldinho played for the Catalan club between 2003 and 2008.

For now, though, we know that Coutinho is back in training.

"And we saw training this morning and thought "OK, maybe we should use him immediately" because he was really good, but that doesn't make sense".

Coutinho has yet to play for Liverpool in competitive games this season but turned out for Brazil in both World Cup qualifiers over the worldwide break.

'We always have the same decision to make, 'does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff.

He added: 'He showed up in a very, very good mood and looks really promising'.

"Roberto played in the second game a little bit longer, but both are fit so that's cool, they're healthy so now we have to see", Klopp continued.

Klopp has not necessarily missed Coutinho's services so far this season, with new signing Mohamed Salah stepping in very nicely and the team winning five of their six games so far.
