Roberto Firmino has left a heartfelt message on Facebook after the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.
Coutinho completed a £142million transfer to Barcelona on Monday, leaving his Brazilian compatriot Firmino behind at Anfield.
The pair had become good friends off the pitch as well as developing a telepathic understanding on the field and Firmino says he will be sad to see Coutinho leave.
Coutinho was the best man at Firmino’s wedding in Brazil last summer.
Firmino claimed Liverpool “is no longer the same” after Coutinho was finally granted his wish of a move to Barcelona.

“Liverpool is no longer the same without you my magical brother,” Firmino posted on Facebook.
“I wish you infinite success, that you enjoy life and realise all your dreams brother. “God is always protecting you and your whole family. It was an honour to play with a wizard like you.”
