The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are expecting big things from the coming season…
Jurgen Klopp’s side enjoyed a very good season last time out, with a top four finish ensuring Champions League football ahead of the coming campaign. It has been a tough few years at Anfield, but it looks as though the Reds are finally returning to their pomp.
Transfer-wise, the summer has been a mixed bag so far, with Mohamed Salah the only major signing so far, though that could change over the coming weeks.
Perhaps more important than incoming players is the topic of outgoing players, with the future of Brazilian Philippe Coutinho of particular concern to those in the Transfer Tavern. Coutinho has been linked with a move to Barcelona recently, and some fans in the pub have spent the last few days toasting to what they perceive as an inevitable departure.
However, those fears have now, seemingly, been put to rest, with Liverpool’s owners – the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) – delivering an announcement that has been responded to with cheers in the pub. Coutinho, they say, will not be leaving Anfield this summer under any circumstances.
Since then, Coutinho himself has reportedly handed in a transfer request, so it remains to be seen just how this saga will develop. For now, though, it appears as though supporters are backing their club.
The Liverpool fans on Reddit are celebrating the statement, and they’ve given quite the reaction.
