AFP, BURNLEY, EnglandJuergen Klopp on Monday insisted that Philippe Coutinho was genuinely injured for Liverpool’s 2-1 win at Burnley as he laughed off talk of the Brazilian joining Barcelona. However, Reds boss Klopp claimed there was nothing untoward behind the 25-year-old’s absence from Liverpool’s squad at Turf Moor as he responded to questions about the Nike pictures. Somebody told me and I thought: ‘Wow,’ but I couldn’t be less interested in anything in the world,” Klopp said. “You need to win your average games, win with attitude when you are not 100 percent. We deserved the three points.”Mane’s goal was his eighth of the season and Klopp praised the Senegalese for his determination when Liverpool’s top players were missing.
