The missing link: Liverpool fans desperate for Coutinho return

Liverpool fans on Twitter have been hoping Philippe Coutinho returns to Anfield after a poor spell at Barcelona.

The Brazilian midfielder was at Liverpool for five years before making the switch to Camp Nou where he has since struggled.

The former Inter man was a star under Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp, becoming a fan favourite in the Kop due to his tendency for scoring long-range screamers.

Coutinho left Liverpool in a deal worth up to £142million but has found life hard at Barcelona since joining, netting only five goals in 28 appearances for La Blaugrana in the league this season.

Liverpool have since been in a Champions League final and are now challenging for the Premier League title but certain sections of the fanbase still miss the 26-year-old believing he is the missing piece in Klopp’s side.

In response to an article urging Liverpool fans to forgive Coutinho for leaving and the club to re-sign him, many Reds fans were clamouring for his return.
