Allez Les Rouges: Dealing with being Liverpool's next big thing and the former favourite who could turn one point into three

Counting down the days until the start of the season? Or still revelling in the fact that Liverpool are champions of Europe and what was a glorious weekend of sport? Allez Les Rouges host Peter Hooton and regular guests Ste Monaghan and John Nicolson are in the latter camp and, judging by Jurgen Klopp's demeanour at the start of pre-season, the Liverpool manager is completely relaxed too. And no wonder when he has young talent ready to burst through like Rhian Brewster. Our panel discuss the 19-year-old's flying start to the summer, and how his setback last season could actually be a blessing in disguise, but also why there is a danger of being branded the next 'big thing'. Klopp has also been boosted by the return of senior players to full fitness but Peter, Ste and John argue that does not mean the Reds can afford to be letting players leave. Talk then turns to transfers and reports linking Philippe Coutinho with a move back to Anfield. When Paul Pogba is valued at £150m by Manchester United, how much would Coutinho go for? And, anyway, would he be welcomed back? But for now it is purely speculation and as things stand, it has been a quiet transfer for Liverpool and a lot of their rivals. Unlike in the sports journalist world... Enjoy.
