'Liverpool cannot keep Coutinho'- said Souness

With Barcelona determined to sign the Brazilian, there is little Liverpool can do to retain their star if he chooses to accept the Catalans' offer, former Red Greame Souness believes.

After news surfaced claiming Coutinho would like a move to the Camp Nou, former Reds manager Greame Souness stated that the move will happen sooner or later.
'I don't think you can', said Souness, when asked whether Liverpool can hold on to Coutinho. 'The chance to play for a team that would suit his style of play, I don't think he can say no to it, as hard as that is for Liverpool to accept'.
The Brazilian will not look to force a deal and will only part ways with the Reds if it is done amicably, but Souness believes there is little Klopp's side can do to retain him.
'Ultimately if he wants to go he will go, as much as the club won't want him to. He's on a contract but if the big players want to go these days then they get their own way', he concluded.
