Best Twitter reactions as Philippe Coutinho is linked with Liverpool return

During his time at Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho became a firm fan favourite, dazzling supporters with his ability, particularly with long-range efforts.

Nicknamed ‘the magician’, it’s been a year since the Brazilian international departed Anfield to realise his dream of playing for Barcelona, and it’s fair to say the trajectories of the two respective parties have been contrasting.

Having been well aware of the fact they were losing Coutinho, Liverpool signed Virgil van Dijk for £75m and his presence helped the Reds reach the Champions League final, being potentially two Loris Karius clangers away from winning a sixth European Cup.

Domestically, they are now top of the Premier League table with a four-point advantage over Manchester City, with this being their best chance of winning the title in 29 years. Liverpool have gone from strength-to-strength, while Coutinho has been struggling to find his best form.

The 26-year-old has started just nine games in La Liga this term, coming off the bench on six occasions and has scored four goals, providing one assist. Barcelona are believed to be underwhelmed with his current form, with rumours already surfacing that they could sell Coutinho in order to fund a move for Neymar.

With Barcelona linked with a move for a former player, as are Liverpool. A potential Coutinho return to Anfield has certainly got fans talking and it’s fair to say it’s a divisive subject. Check out some of the best Twitter reactions to the recent Coutinho links below.
