The sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona was a watershed moment for Liverpool, yet whilst the Reds have gone from strength to strength since the departure of the Brazilian, the same things can’t be said for their former no. 10.
Philippe Coutinho has admitted that he should never have left #LFC and that his career has stalled since making the ‘dream’ £142 million transfer to Barcelona in January 2018. 👀

Coutinho has failed to light up La Liga since his arrival from Liverpool, and last summer the former Inter Milan star was shipped out to Bayern Munich on loan for the season, where he has since managed to regain some form with the Brazilian hitting eight goals and six assists in the Bundesliga.
Should Liverpool re-sign Philippe Coutinho?
And a recent report from The Mirror claims that Coutinho now regrets his choice to leave Liverpool, with Barcelona keen to offload the Brazilian playmaker after a disappointing tenure with the club. Yet for some Reds supporters on social media, they wanted nothing more to do with the 27-year-old.
Here’s what a few Liverpool fans had to say on Twitter about the report…
why are we still talking about him

We all know that’ll be the only regret of his footballing career. Can we move on now, please!

If he had decided to leave five years prior to klopp’s arrival no one could fault him.
But he had a front row seat to the revolution and still bolted.
