"We don't start a season by not having any ambitions", the affable and energetic German said.

"I think that Liverpool fans should really enjoy him over the next 12 months as if a big-money offer does come in at the end of next season and if the player wants to play for Barcelona then there is not really much LFC can do". The fact is Dortmund were in the Champions League last season. We have to have our goals and I think we have a very good team now.

English Premier League clubs are among the biggest spenders in European football coupled with best managerial names in Antonio Conte (Chelsea), Jose Mourinho (Manchester United), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur) and Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool).

Klopp said of his teams aims for the upcoming season, "Yes, we will be playing for the championship". We will have to work very hard, and we are ready to.

The main piece in the Coutinho puzzle is Barcelona star Neymar, who has been strongly linked to a world record deal with Paris Saint-Germain of 222 million euros. The word "not" means there is no interpretation.

Liverpool have confirmed Joe Gomez (knee) and Divock Origi (hamstring) will sit out the preseason tournament after picking up slight knocks in Saturday's friendly with Hertha Berlin. "We still have a few little problems there".

Barcelona previously had an €80m bid knocked back by the Reds, who insisted earlier Monday they will not sell the player.

"He brings us the next coaching generation; we are not old but we are already that long in the business, so it's normal that you have routines, you use them and they are good".
