Former Liverpool captain Thompson wants club to explore bringing Coutinho back

Former Liverpool captain Thompson wants club to explore bringing Coutinho back”

The Brazil global has failed to impress since arriving from Liverpool in a £105 million ($135m) deal in January 2018, despite playing his part in two Liga title wins.And while he has struggled to fully win over supporters in Catalunya, their relationship has suffered in recent weeks after his celebration after scoring against Manchester United in the Champions League.

Thompson said: "I would take him back in a heartbeat, but it would have to be now".

"You don't want to leave it another 12 months, I think he still has the ability".

Another said, "Why should we buy a player who is shit for Barcelona".

"He likes to be in the middle where he can pull strings and is getting on the ball to hurt teams". Highlights from Liverpool's win over Wolves in the Premier League.

And if the club are permitted to make signings this summer, they will attempt to bring Coutinho back to the Premier League.

Barcelona have already secured one half of the double, with them already wrapping up their 26th La Liga title with victory over Levante in April.

Coutinho played against the Reds for the first time since leaving for Barcelona last January in the Champions League semi-finals, but was abject in both legs.

Since arriving from Liverpool, Coutinho has not found it easy to settle down at the Nou Camp, and has been reportedly linked with Manchester United.

Thompson added: "He was that little bit clever, that creativity behind those front three that you could go to in games where you knew you were going to have the majority of the possession".

And a fellow Reds fan posted: "I feel for him...but ours fans don't want him back".
