Klopp reacts to Nike advert for Coutinho at Barca

Date published: Tuesday 2nd January 2018 11:07

Liverpool manager responded in wonderfully sarcastic fashion to the story that Nike mistakenly advertised Barcelona shirts adorned with Philippe Coutinho’s name.

Nike had to take down an advert – which appeared on their Spanish website –  titled ‘Where the magic happens’ that suggested ‘Philippe Coutinho is ready to light up Camp Nou. Get your 2017/18 FC Barcelona kit with the Magician’s name on it’.

With reports suggesting that Liverpool are ready to sell the Brazilian for an ‘astronomical fee’, Klopp was asked about the story after the Reds beat Burnley 2-1 on Monday.

Klopp said: “I heard about it. I couldn’t be less interested in anything in the world.

“But somebody told me and I thought ‘wow’. Top story.”
