Le Tissier aims cheeky dig at Liverpool over Coutinho rumours

Date published: Sunday 23rd July 2017 6:35 - Joe Williams

Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier thinks Liverpool should “do the right thing” and let Philippe Coutinho join La Liga giants Barcelona.

Speculation has been increasing in recent weeks that Barcelona will try and tempt Coutinho to Anfield with a reported bid of £72million already turned down.

A report in the Daily Mirror late Saturday night claims that the Catalans are preparing an improved £80million offer to test the Reds’ resolve.

Some Liverpool supporters have been urging Southampton to let Virgil van Dijk leave for Anfield and now they are likely to be keen on seeing Coutinho remain.

And Le Tissier, a big Saints fan, couldn’t help himself on Sunday morning with a cheeky tweet asking Liverpool to give the Brazilian the move he “deserves”.

He tweeted: “Hope Liverpool do the right thing and let Coutinho join Barca so he doesn’t have to go on strike, he deserves a move to a club like that.”

Of course the Liverpool fans were quick to respond to his comments with some banter of their own.
