A number of Liverpool fans have implored the club to re-sign Philippe Coutinho after he helped Bayern Munich to reach the Champions League final last night.
The Brazilian playmaker, who left Anfield for Barcelona in January 2018, contributed to the downfall of his parent club in the competition when he scored twice against them in Bayern’s 8-2 demolition of the La Liga side six days ago.
He had to be content with a substitute’s role again last night’s 3-0 win against Lyon but he showed glimpses of him at his best during his 15-minute appearance, completing nine of his 10 passes and finishing to the net from a thread pass by Thomas Muller, only to have the goal ruled out for offside.
Liverpool have been strongly linked with one of Coutinho’s team-mates in Thiago Alcantara recently, with Fabrizio Romano writing in The Guardian this week that the Reds are keen on the Spain international but are unwilling to meet Bayern’s asking price.
Would you take Philippe Coutinho back at Anfield?
However, with the 28-year-old making an impact and potentially set to become a Champions League winner, these Liverpool supporters would gladly welcome him back on Merseyside, with one Kopite describing him as a “phenomenal” player:
Forget Thiago, bring Coutinho back @lfc

Unpopular opinion: Thiago has nothing more to offer to the current squad of #LfC. Gini, Naby, Heddo, Milner and Fabinho are more than enough in the midfield.
Liverpool needs more someone like Coutinho. #LYOBAY #ChampionsLeague

Dear Klopp! Can you please bring Coutinho back to LFC. Forgive and forget? With sincere regards.
