Liverpool fans pleased to see Coutinho back in training

Having represented Brazil during the recent international break, Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho is ‘fit and healthy’ to take to the field, according to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

Coutinho returned to Liverpool on Thursday, and it would have been an interesting first day back for the attacker, who desperately tried to engineer a move to Barcelona in the summer.

Liverpool held firm when it came to Barcelona bidding in excess of £100m for Coutinho, however, and the 25-year-old will now remain at Anfield until at least the January transfer window.

It is thought that the attacker, who has only just overcome a back injury, will be on the bench for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Manchester City this weekend as Klopp eases him back into the first-team picture.

There are a number of Liverpool supporters that are finding it difficult to forgive Coutinho, but the majority are just pleased to have the Brazil international back in the squad.

Football has a short memory, and if Coutinho comes off the bench to score the winner against Man City this weekend, it seems that all will be forgiven when it comes to his conduct during the summer.
