Philippe Coutinho

Matt Le Tissier‏ trolls Liverpool over Philippe Coutinho

Matt Le Tissier‏ v Liverpool

Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier‏ has pissed off Liverpool fans on Sunday, by calling on the Reds to sell Philippe Coutinho to FC Barcelona.

Rumours linking Coutinho to the Camp Nou have been swirling around for several months, while recently there’s been discussion that the Brazilian star could become the long term replacement for Andres Iniesta.

Jurgen Klopp, however, is determined to keep hold of his South American star.

Speaking over the weekend, Klopp made it clear that Liverpool intend to have Coutinho on their books in 2017-18.

But according to Le Tissier, Liverpool should let Coutinho go.

The Sky Sports pundit has voiced his (possibly tongue in cheek) concern that Coutinho may go on strike to force through his move to Spain.

Moreover, Le Tissier has argued that Coutinho “deserves a move to a club like that”.

Making sure Liverpool fans know how highly he rates their club, Le Tissier posted a second update on Twitter revealing how he believes the Reds are a small club.
