Philippe Coutinho

Many English Premier League outfit Liverpool fans can still not explain why manager Jurgen Klopp released Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho to Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona despite his very good form.

The star player was in great form which attracted Barcelona in last year’s winter window and the Reds cashed in a whopping £142 million on him to leave to the La Liga.

Philippe Coutinho got to Barcelona and became an ordinary player without the spark he was known for. Now, he can barely boast of a first team football because he has been favoured behind French forward Ousmane Dembele.

However, it has been revealed that the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp knew some secret about the Barcelona man and it was not favourable for him to keep him much longer at the Anfield.

Catalan newspaper Sport, claims the German manager was not keen on Philippe Coutinho as earlier suggested because he knew the Brazilian as a “fragile” player who has a “doubtful character”. Most importantly, he never showed leadership qualities in the dressing room.

The report claims that Jurgen Klopp has not regretted having Philippe Coutinho sold especially now that he has got Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk with the funds earns from the sale of the Brazilian.
