About potential return to Liverpool, this is what Philippe Coutinho said…
The issue of returning to Anfield was repeatedly heard during the summer transfer market, but in the end, Coutinho remained at Barcelona. However, the Brazilian player admitted that he did not rule out a return to the Premier League Club.
The 28-year-old midfielder joined Liverpool in the summer transfer market in 2013. His career with the Reds developed rapidly, then decided to leave in 2018 for Barcelona.
For approximately five years defending the Marseyside Team, Coutinho’s name really soared. Unfortunately, during that period he failed to present the title to Liverpool.
Although of course disappointed by this fact, Coutinho is still happy with the experience he got while playing in England with Liverpool.
In fact, if there is another opportunity to join Anfield in the future, Coutinho admits that he will really open up opportunities for the transfer to materialize.
“The Premier League is one of the most exciting leagues in the world. Having the opportunity to play for a team like Liverpool will always be something I’m grateful for,”
“It is impossible to say what may or may not happen in the future. But right now my only aim is to be successful with Barcelona.” Coutinho told World Soccer Magazine.
As we said before, Coutinho was repeatedly rumored to be “CLBK” with Liverpool last summer.
This is due to public doubts about the player’s return to Barcelona after his loan spell at Bayern Munich ends. But in the end, Coutinho still returned to Camp Nou.
In his second period at Barcelona, Coutinho became an important pillar in the Barcelona midfield under the direction of Ronald Koeman’s new coach. This season the 28-year-old player has recorded 5 goals in all competitions.
Most recently, he also scored against Osasuna, where the Spanish La Liga continued match which took place last weekend was won by Barcelona with a score of 4-0.
As for now, Barcelona is preparing to face Ferencvaros in the continued group phase of the European Champions League.
