The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been concerned about the future of Philippe Coutinho as of late…
The Brazilian is undoubtedly one of Europe’s top players, and for Liverpool this season he has been one of the Premier League’s standout midfielders, often able to create opportunities out of nowhere.
Unsurprisingly, though, his fine form has left the fans in the pub questioning whether he will stay at the club this summer, with his fine performances unlikely to go unnoticed. Coutinho, though, has now revealed exactly what he thinks of that sort of speculation.
Questioned on whether he will play for another team next season: “A lot of people have been asking me this, but I don’t understand. I have a contract with Liverpool – a long contract. This speculation is for other people only”.
An emphatic response from Coutinho, this has left the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern feeling delighted. Whilst the Brazilian could certainly play for one of Europe’s top teams, he appears happy at Liverpool, and with good reason.
The Reds are clearly a team on the up, and the return of the Champions League to Anfield next season will likely bring with it renewed hope that Liverpool are on course to become a European powerhouse once again.
Our landlord is expecting the Reds to pose a title challenge next season…
