This is complete tosh.
It’s clearly an attempt from Coutinho’s representatives to create a situation where it’s no longer feasible for our no.10 to stay at Liverpool…
‘A close family member,’ (who we believe is just Coutinho’s agent Kia Joorabchian) has told Sky Sports that our Brazilian has ‘fallen out’ with Jurgen Klopp and has been wanting an exit for six months now.
They claim the source told them Coutinho has grievances with being substituted too often and playing in different positions.
But six months ago, Coutinho signed a five-year contract, without a release clause, and happily stated how happy he was at Liverpool and specifically that he had no ambitions to play in Spain.
He then played phenomenally for the final few months of the season, putting in match winning performances against Everton, West Ham and Middlesbrough.
When scoring in each of those matches, he performed manic, emotional celebrations – often sharing an embrace with his manager.
At the start of the summer, Coutinho flew home to Brazil and bought all his family and friends the new Liverpool shirt.
Last month during Liverpool’s pre-season camp in Germany, he told Klopp he would understand if the club chose to keep him.
He has NOT been agitating for a move for six months. It’s complete rubbish spread by agents who want the move to go through.
