Sadio Mane More Important To Liverpool Than Philippe Coutinho - Jamie Carragher

Sadio Mane More Important To Liverpool Than Philippe Coutinho - Jamie Carragher

Jamie Carragher insist that Coutinho is no where close to how important Sadio Mane is to Liverpool, though maintaining that Coutinho will not be sold this summer.

The Brazilian, Philippe Coutinho has been sidelined due to a back injury, which has left him absent in the opening games of the season while the Senegalese Sadio Mane has scored in both occasions to deliver the Reds.

Ask of the importance of the both when compared together Carragher said. 

"I'd make an argument for that, especially with the way Jurgen Klopp likes to play. I think he's massively important," he said on Monday Night Football .

"You see the goals that he's got and his goals record for a wide player is phenomenal since he's come to the club.

"All the other players on the list are top strikers in the Premier League. For Mane to be there, it shows his impact.

"If you compare him to Coutinho, who is a fantastic player which is why Barcelona want him, but if he carries on the way he is going, the top clubs around Europe will be looking at him because he has been a revelation since he came in."

Jamie also maintained that the Reds will hold on to philippe Coutinho due to their inactivity in the transfer window

"They will hang onto Coutinho now, of course. I don't think there is any doubt now. I said a few weeks ago that they can't sell him, but the problem is it becomes more political rather than the business of it," he added.

"Liverpool have had such a poor window, they couldn't be seen to be letting go of him. Now if Liverpool three big targets of Virgil Van Dijk, Naby Keita and Mo Salah had all come in the door, it may have been easier to prise him away.

"Even a supporter might have thought '120m for Coutinho?' with the ability to go and spend that with a few weeks of the season to go, but they were never going to sell him because of the fact they had not bought enough players in."
