Liverpool fans full of praise for £45m-rated attacker

If it were up to Philippe Coutinho, the attacker would currently be in Spain preparing for Barcelona’s La Liga clash against Las Palmas this weekend.

The Brazilian desperately tried to force a move to Camp Nou during the summer transfer window, but Liverpool were not playing ball as the Reds refused Coutinho a move.

In fairness to the 25-year-old, he has put his head down over the last couple of weeks – scoring against Leicester City in the Premier League last weekend, before notching against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

It remains to be seen whether Coutinho is committed to Liverpool on a long-term basis, but it seems that the Reds have their star player back with them following a difficult period.

On Thursday, Liverpool’s official Twitter account posted a video of Coutinho scoring from various long-range attempts.

There were some Liverpool fans that took the chance to criticise the team’s defence when responding to the post, but many were quick to hail Coutinho ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash with Newcastle United.
