Klopp, who said in August that the club would not sell Coutinho at any price, said that Liverpool tried everything to keep him but that the player was determined to leave.
The Reds are now preparing for their crunch clash against Manchester City at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. "You will probably know before I do".
"We tried everything to convince him to stay here and carry on together", said Klopp.
The Liverpool boss said he wasn't disappointed the player had left and suggested that the player would have been no use to the club in the second half of the season.
It would have been hard if we say, what we could have done of course, "look there's your contract you have to stay here" and to use him as a player in the second half of the season. I didn't make a decision so far if he is ready for that.
"To be fair it is still odd, I think we still have to realise he has gone", he said. And to be honest, it was 100 per cent clear, no chance.
"The first game (of the season) against Watford we played well and conceded at the end of the game (to draw 3-3)". That is the biggest thing we have to change if we want to compete with teams like City. "We made that decision".
As preparation for a big game, selling a top player is hardly ideal and that would have been reflected on the training ground. "You always need to react". It's about the atmosphere in the club. On Sunday, for example, if there's a free kick in the stadium from 18 or 20 yards and everyone is thinking: "ah, Phil". Use it, don't suffer because of it. However, once the summer transfer window closed, Coutinho returned to action and was in excellent form for Liverpool, scoring 12 goals, and registering eight assists, in 19 appearances between September and December.
"When Phil didn't play in some games we still played great football and we still have incredible players who can score goals - the likes of Mo [Salah], Sadio [Mané], Roberto [Firmino] and everyone else".

Klopp says that Liverpool won't make insane things in January to replace Coutinho. That's how it is.
How will Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp ensure that doesn't happen?
"I haven't really even thought about Phil leaving", insists Liverpool's summer arrival from Arsenal, fresh from the mid-season break that followed the FA Cup defeat of Everton.
"I knew Phil was a world-class talent before I joined".
At Anfield they have quietly been rather stingy, only conceded four Premier League goals in 11 games this season.
Coutinho, meanwhile, is now in the process of working his way back to fitness after being ruled out for 20 days with a thigh injury after completing his £142 million move to the Camp Nou. "It's not one hero and the rest try to help them a little bit", he declared. That's the situation and we are already used to it, it's now pretty much a week ago. In the 80s, they dominated the world and European football. He was quite impressive, it was a really good game.
