As for Barca, while they may not have got their way in prising him from Liverpool's clutches, it's unlikely to end their interest in the 25-year-old, and it wouldn't be surprising if they were to return for him at a later date.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Coutinho, Brazil legend Ronaldinho has insisted that Liverpool fans should not be anxious.
Liverpool fans were also reassured by Pele, who won three World Cups with Brazil and is the national team's all-time top scorer, who told Marca: "Coutinho is a player I think we should all look at too because he is excellent for his team".
That injury, which sidelined the playmaker for all five of the club's fixtures this season, subsided while he represented Brazil, with their team doctors saying the problem was more to do with the stress over his situation.
"We saw training this morning and thought, "Okay, maybe we should use him immediately", because he was really good, but that doesn't make sense".
'Of course - all good, all good, ' Klopp said, when asked about his conversation with Coutinho.
'We always have the same decision to make, 'does he need training or can he play?' and all that stuff.
