For those of you who don’t know who this guy is, this is Mr @phil.coutinho
A playmaker for Liverpool FC. We call him the magician. Not because he can do wonders with his left, right, centre whatever. But the fact that he has done it under immense pressure! After the dark transfer clouds passed away, he has given it all for the team. And the fact that a “mighty” club like Barcelona. A heaven of Footballing brain and skills. But a South American , of course. A Brazilian. Hence the affinity towards the big fishes of the Spanish league. I do not blame them. Understandable, but thing that we call unethical, is if being called upon, both on the connection between the two Clubs as well as on the player’s mind, having a family it affects Phil and them as well. The liverpool fans, as the real entourage of this Brazilian wonderkid they got from Inter under Rafa’s helm (Rafael Benitez), should always be embracing towards their own kin. Them. The players, yes sometimes issues like Lovren or the goalkeeper may frustrate you, but keeping in mind the pride they take from putting on that jersey, and the effort that Phil has given in professionally, I think the lad deserves some more love and respect , maybe be for one last time , before he leaves. Because he will leave. For sure. Just look at him play nowadays. Not just the “no smile, no joy” celebrations of late, but the swagger that has come into his play. No disrespect to Liverpool, but I think he has gone a level above just like Suarez did, and the lack of trophies again would a be a reason that will cost Liverpool another world class talent. Proven. But still more to come. But proven. Eventually he will leave and the fans should enjoy and cherish them just like we did with Suarez. I have a but.
But, if the lad needs to depart, in my opinion he should move under Zidane’s tutelage rather than the camp of Lionel Messi (No shots fired).
Just to screw with the Catalan based club.
