Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp reveals what he thinks of Philippe Coutinho joining Bayern Munich

Jurgen Klopp has backed Philippe Coutinho to succeed at Bayern Munich after joining on a season-long loan from Barcelona.

Liverpool sold Coutinho in January 2018 for an initial £105 million, which could rise to £142m.

The move didn’t worked out as planned for the Brazilian international or the Catalan giants, who were keen to get him off the wage books during the summer transfer window.

Despite his failure to secure a regular first-team place in Ernesto Valverde’s plans at the Nou Camp, Klopp is confident he will succeed in Germany.

“[He’s a] world-class player, really good transfer for Bayern and the Bundesliga,” Klopp told Bild.

“I thought it’s a good fit for both when I first heard about it.

“It may sound strange, but we didn’t have enough money to get him.

“We’d already spent all the money we got for him.
