Liverpool fans mocked former midfielder Philippe Coutinho after he is due to be sent back to Barcelona following an unsuccessful loan spell at Bayern Munich, according to reports.
The 27-year-old spent five-and-a-half seasons at Anfield before his £142m move to the Catalan giants in 2018, having scored 54 goals and provided 45 assists in 201 appearances for the Reds. He faced intense scrutiny in both Spain and Germany where he was accused of playing “like a youngster” (according to Besoccer) and “not doing enough” (as per the Mirror).
