The 25-year-old has now been reintegrated back into the Liverpool squad and made his first start of the season in the 1-1 draw with Burnley yesterday. He was given a warm ovation before the game but, with Liverpool toiling, there was not much applause for him when his number was held up.

The Brazilian worldwide Coutinho had been linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer and the Catalan giants reportedly had a number of bids rejected for the player, including one that was worth £138 million.

Barcelona are preparing a bid for Liverpool attacker Sadio Mane.

'What happened was a job offer and, in life, sometimes you get interested, ' Coutinho told ESPN Brazil before he left Anfield.

That is unlikely to be the case, but the Reds are bracing themselves for interest nonetheless. It is a great honour to have received an offer from such a great club - but it's the same here. Liverpool is a great club worldwide.

Coutinho also insisted he was not hurt by how the situation unfolded. It is all cool'.

However some reports have suggested Coutinho will ultimately follow former team-mate Luis Suarez in staying at Anfield for one season then move to Barcelona. I am in a place that I have always been given respect by everyone and (I) too respect everyone.

"In four or five years I've never had any problems with anybody here: the fans, teammates, the board, the coaching staff". That has not changed.
