Kia Joorabchian has made some very interesting comments about Philippe Coutinho’s Barcelona future on TalkSport amidst those Liverpool rumours.

Speaking to Jim White on TalkSport on Monday, Kia Joorabchian said: “It would be very difficult for Philippe to play for any of Liverpool’s rivals, because he has such a great affinity towards Liverpool. His time there was fantastic. Yes, but like all big players at some point, you want to experience a different thing in your career because your career is very short, but it [his Anfield exit] has no reflection on the fact his heart and affinity is very much with Liverpool. I know he was cheering every time they had the chance. Lucas Leiva is the same way. A lot of these guys who leave Liverpool remain Liverpool fans because of the fans and the passion they have. So it would be hard for him to go to a rival. Every time we’ve spoken about it we’ve had that same conversation, he would find it hard to play for another club in the Premier League.”
He finished with a very interesting line that has got all Reds talking…”Obviously if he were to move back [to the Premier League], it would have to be Liverpool”
Would have Coutinho back tomorrow, Absolute no brainer, think it’s very very possible he will be back in a Liverpool shirt next season— Darren Farley (@DFImpressionist) July 15, 2019
We’d take him back…he’d have to some grovelling and apologising, but as soon as he bends one in the top corner at the Kop end to win The Reds the league, all will be forgiven. He’d be a brilliant addition to Klopp’s squad, given that we still haven’t really replaced him. If we got him in on any sort of loan, that would be quite incredible, and with an option to buy that would be significantly less than what we sold him for…Michael Edwards would deserve a knighthood. Would you take him back?
