Coutinho has left an impact since leaving Anfield, and is currently on loan at Bayern Munich where he has so far scored seven goals in 26 appearances this season. this season – but McManaman thinks they can still do it with a player from Coutinho's peers.
# They could choose to have a certain Philippe Coutinho ba bring ck to the club, & he told HorseRacing. just .
& # 39; I would not mind seeing Coutinho again. He is a brilliant player, but much of it is simply due to the economy. If they can bring Coutinho back for a reasonable fee and possibly sell a few players who don't play regularly, that might work.
& # 39; There are rumors that Xherdan Shaqiri is leaving at the end of the season, and Adam Lallana may want to play more often. If space is available, I would definitely want Coutinho back, as he was a great player for Liverpool. He is that type of player that when plan A does not work, he can change the game.
& # 39; He scored some incredible goals for Liverpool and although they have to win the fans after he asked to leave, I think most fans would recognize how good he was for Liverpool. & # 39;
Coutinho played 201 times for Liverpool, scored 54 goals at the time and created many more.
His performances since leaving northwest England have left much to be desired, but at 27 he has many years left at the highest level of the game.
