It's true. He's said it himself. When Utd approached him his wife told him it wasn't right. When we approached him, his wife said it was right.

I think I posted it a week or so back - totally true

And a reason he would never manage Madrid/Barca - if people cant understand the type of manager he is and the clubs he like to manage (set up) then they dont understand Klopp

I think I'd have him back with his tail between his legs for £50M

I wonder if Klopp would? He is massive on trust with his players, he without doubt broke any of that when he left and the mannor he left would say to me no chance

Maybe not, but a mended Phil is exactly what we need in MF

maybe he should not have fked off then , faked in jury and gone on strike - certainly not one im bothered about...
Rather us spend more on someone younger, faster, more agile than Phil - Haverts/Sancho etc

Can’t see Bayern parting with that kind of money to be honest. Maybe if they gave us £25mil.

Klopp did come out in the Summer and say Phil C wasn't an option they were considering. Can't see why he would change his mind to be honest. Unless it was down to price, and it didn't sound like it was. I think Phil burned his bridges there with the way he left.

I wouldn't have him back. If he was playing ok at Bayern then maybe.

But why would we have him back? He's 27 now, 28 next summer. Supposedly at his peak and yet struggled to find form at two different clubs.

Whereas we've become so much better as a team since he left and I'd argue that we could find someone better for his position (and wages).

You seem a bit bothered Sye smile

I was daydreaming on something that won’t happen. We miss his creativity not his attitude (at the end) but he was superb for a few years. Plus it would amuse me to buy him back at a fraction of what we got

Not at all? I just don't like spending 60quid a game and seeing a player then go on strike then wish for him to come back

There are as jammy said better options avail younger

For similar money I would imagine we could get someone like Bruno Fernandes.

Coutinho hasn't played well for a while, faked injury twice to force a move and doesn't fit into our current system.

He was a confidence player when we got him and he is still one now. Difference is we don't have the need to give him time to bed in and to potentially disrupt the dressing room of he comes back and it doesn't go right or he doesn't play.

He doesn't make our first eleven at the minute. He's not the right player for our midfield and he doesn't get ahead of the front three.

I'd leave him where he is and go get someone who is younger.
