Klopp, speaking after their 3-3 draw with Watford on Saturday, stated that whether Coutinho stays or goes, depends on his “bosses”.
Coutinho is desperate to join Barcelona and the Brazilian submitted a transfer request on Friday, to try to force the move through.
When sked about the transfer request, which was emailed to Michael Edwards, Liverpool’s sporting director, Klopp said: “I didn’t get it but I can say something that is maybe more important.
“As a manager of a football club I have bosses, and if bosses decide, for example, just in general, if we sell a player or we don’t sell him, then I have to accept it.
“I cannot say anything about it [the transfer request]. I work with the players I have – that is what I’m always doing.”
