Aldridge: Klopp must push for Coutinho despite 'nasty taste'

Liverpool hero John Aldridge has explained why Jurgen Klopp should do “all he can” to bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield.

Reports last week suggested Coutinho had made a personal plea to Klopp to sanction a return to the club to join Barcelona in January 2018.

Liverpool were forced to withdraw from the chase to sign RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner as Chelsea outbid them for the Germany star.

So Aldridge suggests the financial constraints at Anfield are a prime reason why Coutinho will fit Klopp’s bill.

“Liverpool’s decision to pull out of a deal to sign Werner confirmed they are short of cash after the coronavirus pandemic ripped a hole on football’s finances.

“That left a nasty taste in the mouth, but we are heading into this summer with Liverpool openly admitting they can’t afford to sign top players.
