Coutinho tells Liverpool he wants to leave


Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has submitted a transfer request, hours after the Premier League club released a statement saying he is not for sale.

The Anfield club has already refused a €100 million offer from Barcelona with manager Jurgen Klopp insisting the player is not for sale.

Coutinho misses Saturday’s Premier match against Watford because of injury and is a douby for Tuesday’s Champions League play-off first leg at Hoffenheim
