Watford 3-3 Liverpool

0:45 | Soccer         Behind the Scenes of Neymar's SI Cover Shoot

Liverpool have rejected Philippe Coutinho's transfer request as he seeks to push for a move to Barcelona.

"That's how life is", Klopp said at a news conference on Friday, a day before Liverpool begins the Premier League season with a game at Watford. "I hope of course that we will win the game, that's the most important thing in the first game".

"I didn't think he would put in a transfer request, if I'm being honest", he said on Friday Night Football.

"I have to accept decisions from the owners, that's how it is, and sometimes from the players".

However, Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group recently insisted that Coutinho would not be leaving Anfield, and Klopp has revealed that he still believes that to be the case.

"There have been times in the past where players have been unsettled and they've gone in and said "I'm desperate to go" and it's ended up happening".

The game, which was the Reds opening league match of the season, was dominated by speculation over star man Philippe Coutinho's future following the rumor that he had handed in his transfer request earlier in the week.

Watford restored their lead just minutes later when Abdoulaye Doucoure was on hand to fire home after Liverpool had failed to clear their lines to make it 2-1 in the 32nd minute.

"You'll have to ask the club".

Later on yesterday, a close family member of Coutinho's told Sky Sports News: "Philippe has tried very hard to find an amicable solution to this situation but to no avail".

All of the three goals they conceded came from set-pieces: two from corners and one from a throw-in.

'The first goal was a really good and they run and we lose them. We would have had defensive areas we need to work on even if we'd won 3-2, but we were the better team. "I was not properly fit and I came back late and I got an injury - it was not ideal", he told the club's website.

However, by lunch time on the eve of the club's season opener at Watford, they were anticipating his request with some media outlets reporting he had already sent it through. "At this moment I am just concentrating on my team".
