Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool fans react to Philippe Coutinho being named on the bench v Sevilla

He’s back

Philippe Coutinho has been named on the bench for Liverpool’s clash against Sevilla, and many people had opposing reactions to the news.

Of course, some Liverpool fans were thrilled to see their star man back in the squad – and couldn’t wait to see what he can add to the team – but others weren’t happy at all after the player handed in a transfer request and tried to force a late move to Barcelona through during the transfer window.

Coutinho is a key man for Liverpool, and if he is both physically and mentally ready for the game and to come back into the side, Klopp is well within his rights to play him, but the media and fans will be watching the star closely to see if his body language betrays anything to show he’s less than thrilled to still be at Liverpool this season.
