''£140m for Coutinho Is Hilarious'' - Smug Liverpool Fans Troll Former Player As Barcelona Struggles Continue

Coutinho Continues To Struggle At Barcelona After His Liverpool Move
Coutinho Continues To Struggle At Barcelona After His Liverpool Move

Liverpool fans really are in the festive spirit at the moment thanks to a remarkable start to the season with the team currently top of the Premier League table and unbeaten.

2018 is ending on a huge positive for the Anfield club and the fans have taken the time to troll an ex-player who jumped ship at the start of the year.

Coutinho forced a move to Barcelona back in January to the dismay of the fans in the north-west but fast forward almost 12 months and there is no doubt which club got the better side of the deal.

Jurgen Klopp spent the £140m brought in on the Coutinho transfer on Virgil Van Dijk and Alisson in a move which has turned this current Liverpool squad into genuine title challengers and meanwhile over in Spain, things haven't been going as well for the little magician.

Coutinho has failed to make anywhere near the expected impact on the Catalan giants of late and there are now serious question marks about his ability to live up to the hefty price tag which came with him.

The 26-year-old has just four goals and one assist in La Liga this term and confident Liverpool fans have taken to social media to troll their former star...

140m for Coutinho is hilarious. Really it is. - (@KS_Ayodele)

2 ex-players come to mind @Phil_Coutinho and @emrecan_ both were loved by the club and fans but saw greener pastures in ‘better’ clubs. Hope you are enjoying your time. Merry Xmas! - (@yn_wa_)

Feels good that Can and Coutinho who left the club for ‘bigger things’ have not been missed and warming their teams bench - (@JurgenPressed)

It isn't just the Liverpool fans who are tweeting their displeasure about Coutinho though, even the Barcelona supporters on social media are starting to grow frustrated with a player they thought was going to take the team to the next level.

I'm starting to take my words back about Coutinho being a world class player. This guy I'm seeing is absolutely bang average. - (@its_hush_)

Barcelona fans went from spamming me “Coutinho is better than Neymar” to “Coutinho is trash” within a span of 3 months - (@BrazilEdition2)

There is still plenty of time for the talented midfielder to make a massive impact in La Liga but for the time being at least it is the Liverpool fans who have gloating rights over their former player.
