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.
Given the way that Coutinho treated Liverpool, it probably makes sense from a moral viewpoint as well as a financial one that the Merseysiders rejected the chance to bring him back to the club.
Let’s see how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted to the news…

He made his bed, he’ll probably regret that choice for the rest of his life

If he really wanted the move, he would have had a back injury.

Why would we sign a player for that much money who has a mysterious back injury that can flare up at any time?
