Liverpool fans were reminiscing over Philippe Coutinho’s goal against Bournemouth, two years ago today.
The Brazilian ran into the penalty box before dribbling past a sliding Cherries defender and slotting into the back of the net.
Should Liverpool use Brewster instead of signing Minamino?
Coutinho endured an acrimonious end to his career at Anfield after he left the club for Barcelona in a deal worth £142m (via The Telegraph).
Coutinho enjoyed a good time with the Reds as he made 201 appearances across all competitions, scoring 54 goals and assisting 45.
However, it seems fans were left reminiscing over the Brazil international despite his bitter departure from the club as they took to Twitter to react. One supporter even suggested he was better than Kevin De Bruyne in his final months in Liverpool red.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Anfield faithful:
Prison Coutinho was something else. No smiles, just dribbling and scoring.

Would’ve definitely won player of the year that season. Even better than de Bruyne for the first half of the season

One wonders what could’ve been.

This month alone added about 60mil to his value, I know a lot of people miss him but after snaking his way out of our club I don’t wonder what if. We have had the best season in our premier League era without him !

Yeh, that’s when he thought he was the king

He would look back at that time probably with regret.
