The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are feeling rather concerned following the departure of Philippe Coutinho. After a drawn-out saga, Coutinho has swapped Anfield for the Nou Camp, leaving Liverpool fans feeling glum.
Coutinho had become the focal point of the Reds’ first team, and he was arguably Jurgen Klopp’s most important player. Unsurprisingly, then, optimism is low amongst Liverpool circles.
However, their mood is sure to be improved after hearing a few words from summer signing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Discussing the Brazilian’s departure, via the Liverpool Echo, the Ox has revealed that he is not worried about the departure.
He said: “At a massive club like Liverpool, people are going to come and go. Whoever remains, it is our job to keep the wheels moving and keep the momentum going. For me really it is business as usual”.
The Englishman clearly remains very confident about his team’s chances this season, and with good reason. The Reds still have a large number of top-tier players, and realistically, they should still be able to compete for the top four this term.
After a lull earlier this week, Liverpool fans have taken to the Liverpool Reddit fan page to reveal their delight with Oxlade-Chamberlain – and it’s fair to say that many of them are saying the same thing. With such committed and confident words, they all think that the former Arsenal man is going to become the perfect player at Anfield – with some even suggest that he is a future Liverpool captain.
