Liverpool are on course for a memorable, record-breaking season if they maintain their current form but that hasn’t stopped fans from discussing the return of a former player.
Phillipe Coutinho was previously one of the Reds’ most influential players, as his fee of £142m when he moved to Barcelona would indicate, but the switch hasn’t exactly worked out for him. The midfielder is now on loan at Bayern Munich for the season and Liverpool fans have been discussing whether he would be a good addition to the squad after Steve McManaman suggested he’d like to see him return.
However, many Reds supporters seem to disagree with the former Liverpool player, sharing a belief that Coutinho had his chance on Merseyside and decided to give it up. Others suggest he wouldn’t improve the current side and, given that the team has made it to two Champions League finals and looks set to win the Premier League since he departed, they are probably right.
Would Philippe Coutinho get into Liverpool's team?
Here is some of the discussion taking place regarding the Brazilian, with one instead advocating a move for Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.
Coutinho wanted to leave us he made a massive mistake like emre can ,we have moved on let that be a lesson to any player at @LFC

No chance. He’s made his bed and chose to leave. Forget him and move on.

No! Fake injurie to leave Liverpool. Poor perfomaces on Barcelona and Bayern. Liverpool was so much better without him. Why we go for ir, for that so high price?

Silly boy for leaving in first place – liked him but he had his chance to be a legend!

That ship has sailed. I’d have taken him in the summer as I thought we needed him. Not now. His career has been a mess since leaving us.
