Jurgen Klopp warned Philippe Coutinho of the dangers of joining Barcelona.
The Brazilian has had a tough start to life at the Nou Camp having arrived from Liverpool a year ago.
He has failed to nail down a regular starting spot under Ernesto Valverde with his future already in doubt.
“Stay here and they will end up building a statue in your honour,” he said in May 2017.
“Go somewhere else, to Barcelona, to Bayern Munich, to Real Madrid, and you will be just another player. Here you can be something more.”
