"Liverpool is not a club that needs to sell. They played some incredible football past year and had just a couple of problems", he told DAZN.
Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has always maintained that Coutinho, who signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract in January, will not be sold under any circumstances.
Coutinho remains the subject of avid interest from Barcelona as the La Liga giants aim to replace Neymar, who moved to Paris Saint-Germain for a staggering €222 million last week.
Klopp explained that while Liverpool's stand-out performers "are young" and "have to prove their quality in the Premier League", their performances mean he has "to make hard decisions" as to who is included in the 18-man match-day squad.
To this point, Liverpool has managed to complete the transfer of Andy Robertson, Dominic Solanke, and Mohamed Salah this summer, with the latter drafted in for £34mil plus add-ons - a record-breaking fee for the club. No price at which we are ready to give in.
"When FSG say something like this it is 100 per cent clear", said Klopp.
