Aston Villa fans send collective Philippe Coutinho message to board after starring Southampton display

Philippe Coutinho will likely start against Leeds


Supporters of Premier League outfit Aston Villa have flooded to social media on Saturday, to send a collective message to the club's board over the situation of Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho was of course afforded his latest start a short time ago, as Steven Gerrard's Villans played host to Southampton in a league clash.

The Claret and Blue headed into proceedings hopeful of building on a timely three-point haul last time out, when they put Brighton to the sword by two goals to nil.

And, when all was said and done on Saturday, make it back-to-back victories is precisely what Villa managed, running riot en route to an eventual 4-0 final scoreline.

Coutinho, for his part, proved the star of the show, dazzling on his way to a goal and an assist, to make it six direct goal contributions in seven appearances since his return to English football in January.

'Whatever the price'

And, as alluded to above, such efforts have since culminated in a widespread message being directed towards the transfer team at Villa Park, on the part of the club's fanbase.

Taking to Twitter in their droves, the Claret and Blue faithful have called for Coutinho to be brought in on a permanent basis, upon the expiration of his loan deal in the summer:
