“It could be much worse” – Liverpool fans react to Philippe Coutinho being ruled out until 2017

Following news of Philippe Coutinho‘s scan results on Monday, Liverpool fans have been voicing their opinions on the Brazilian’s injury layoff.

There has been much doom and gloom surrounding the ankle injury Coutinho picked up against Sunderland on Saturday, particularly after he was stretchered off.

It has now been confirmed that the 24-year-old will miss around six weeks of action, ruling him out until the New Year. He will not require surgery, though, which is positive news.

Coutinho has been exceptional for Liverpool this season, and having to make do without him for an extended period is going to be tough.

Here’s how Reds supporters reacted to the news on Twitter.
