In his time at Anfield, Philippe Coutinho had some fantastic moments. The little Brazilian was a magician on Merseyside, however, his time at the club was a while ago now, and whilst they loved him then, they don’t want him back now. Regardless of this, an article on Football Whispers has claimed the Reds should be ready to forgive and forget to take him back.
.@SamMcGuire90 says it’s time to forgive Philippe Coutinho and get him back to Anfield.

Liverpool fans have a new Anfield hero in the form of Mo Salah, and they don’t think it would be a wise move to bring Coutinho back to the club. When the Brazilian was at Anfield he was very much the main man, played off of the left-hand side of midfield and had near enough the whole team revolving around him and signing to his tune, and that just wouldn’t be the case if he was to return.
Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino reek havoc at Anfield and have turned pretty much every defensive line they’ve been faced with inside out. The likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Roma, Chelsea and Manchester United have all had headaches after facing this current Anfield side, and adding Coutinho would only ruin the perfect harmony that Jurgen Klopp has achieved.

Never going to happen. Don't be surprised if we start next season with Wilson and Keita as our options in that position. We'll buy cover for front 3, maybe Werner and then cover for Robbo

No. I can see no reason for us to want him back. We're going good without him. Thank you @Phil_Coutinho for all your help. Now go build some career anywhere but Liverpool.

He won't be the same player

It’s not a matter of forgiveness. It’s a matter of he no longer fits into LFC dynamic and game plan. He is a limited player to a certain section of the pitch and has always been that way, which makes him predictable.

Never. The way he handles himself goes to his character

1. Upsetting the dressing room
2. Sending wrong message to LFC's top message
3. For what price?
4. How does he fit in this current team?
Tired of repeating myself but Liverpool going back for Coutinho is totally wrong.

Nope lets move on he chose his path he had it all here at LFC could have been a better player too pic.twitter.com/MhwDmA3Eas

Whilst the Reds will always admire Coutinho as a player they’re just not prepared to take him back and risk upsetting their finely balanced side, leaving the fans to call against resigning the Brazilian.
