Coutinho heads back to Liverpool for a final farewell

Date published: Tuesday 30th January 2018 9:39

Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho returned to Liverpool on Monday to say a final farewell to his former club.

The Brazil star moved to the Catalan giants for £142million earlier this month, having spent four memorable years at Anfield, and made his full debut in Barca’s comeback win over Alaves on Sunday.

The 26-year-old was unable to officially say goodbye to his Reds team-mates after leaving for Barca with an injury but told his new club that he always intended to go back once he was settled.

Coutinho travelled back to Merseyside on Monday to catch up with his former team-mates and club officials to pass on his final farewells.

Liverpool made an impressive start to life without their Brazilian talisman, having beaten Premier League leaders Manchester City 4-3, but have since lost back-to-back games against Swansea and West Brom.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to get back on track when they head to Huddersfield on Tuesday night.
