The former Reds striker is convinced that a highly-rated trainer will stay put and no movement will be forced to bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are”always a choice” for Jurgen Klopp, admits Emile Heskey, but the German tactician is expected to remain loyal to Liverpool.

La Liga giants are eternally on the marketplace for the very finest operators on and off the field, and Klopp has firmly wedged himself in that class over the course of successful spells at Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool.

He’s delivered Champions League glory at Anfield and has the Reds on the verge of a first Premier League title victory.

While his stock continues to rise, new terms are agreed on Merseyside through to 2024, and Heskey anticipates that bargain to be honoured regardless of the obvious threat posed by fellow European heavyweights.

The former Reds striker told GentingBet: “There’s always a choice that Klopp could leave to join a club like Real Madrid or Barcelona.

“But I don’t feel that Klopp is completed with the project he has begun at Liverpool.

“They’re moving into a brand new training facility, they’re actually getting to where they believe they can be when it comes to being recognised as a global brand for a football club.

“Klopp has really set them on the map. I believe Klopp still feels as though he’s got a lot to do. So, I don’t think the fans will be too worried about Klopp leaving.”

While anticipating Liverpool to ditch any attention from Barcelona in Klopp, Heskey cannot find the Reds turning their gaze towards Camp Nou for another familiar face.

They consented to part with Philippe Coutinho through the winter transfer window of 2018.

The Brazil international playmaker has fought in Spain, and during a loan spell in Bayern Munich, but is not expected to retrace his steps to Anfield despite creating loads of transfer talk.

Heskey said: “Liverpool do not normally re-sign players — Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush were the exceptions.

“No disrespect to Coutinho because he’s a fantastic player but where would he fit in the side at this time?

“The negative is looking so great at this moment in time that you can not see him fitting unless you change the creation.

“He could possibly get in the side but Liverpool do not necessarily want him right now.”
