Liverpool fans react after it is revealed that the Reds turned down Philippe Coutinho

Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was revealed by The Telegraph that the Reds turned down the chance to re-sign Philippe Coutinho as part of an £100m package.

The Brazil international left Anfield back in January 2018, moving to Barcelona in a deal worth £142m – Liverpool’s biggest ever sale.

Coutinho handed in a transfer request, allegedly appeared to fake a back injury, and also paid a portion of the transfer fee himself in order to make the move happen, although his dream exit has turned into a nightmare.

The 27-year-old was booed by his own supporters last term and has been put on the market by the Spanish champions as they look to move the 5 foot 8 attacking midfielder on.
