Unlike with Luis Suarez in 2013, Liverpool are refusing to enter a gentleman’s agreement with Coutinho in which we allow him to leave for Barcelona next summer…
According to the Mirror, FSG are flatly not going to make arrangements anymore that actively weaken the team when a player is under a contract.
The ruthless stance is systematic of the demise of player power and ‘transfer requests’ – which saw the likes of Riyad Mahrez, Ross Barkley and Virgil van Dijk stay at their clubs despite publicly wanting to leave.
An open letter to Philippe Coutinho…
Coutinho is said to be devastated by Liverpool’s refusal to do business with odious Barcelona, who’ve embarrassed themselves throughout the summer with constant lies about a deal for our Brazilian.
FSG released a statement saying our no.10 wasn’t for sale and were true to their word – just like they told the truth regarding van Dijk in a statement too.
Now, Coutinho must be reintegrated into Jurgen Klopp’s team. Regardless of what’s gone on, he’s still special.
