Philippe Coutinho was seen training alone after turning up for international duty for Brazil.

The play-maker has not featured for his club this season amidst circumstances surrounding a possible move to Barcelona.

He last played for Liverpool during the Audi Cup in Munich during pre-season.

Manager Jurgen Klopp told reporters that Coutinho was not available for selection, first due to a back injury, and later due to illness.

According to a video released by Brazil Football Federation (CBF), the 25-year-old appears to have overcome those issues as he was seen training ahead of their forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers with Ecuador and Colombia.

He missed Sunday’s 4-0 mauling of Arsenal and many are beginning to ponder if he is still the ‘big fish’ at Anfield.


Mathemaically, Brazil has already qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia and do not need to win their remaining games.
