“The fab four is no more” – Liverpool fans react to news of Philippe Coutinho deal agreed with Barcelona

After 201 appearances and 54 goals, Philippe Coutinho‘s five years at Anfield have come to an end, with Liverpool agreeing a £142 million deal with Barcelona.

The deal is expected to be confirmed late on Saturday, with the Brazilian travelling to the Spanish capital to complete the move.

Liverpool fans have reacted online, with opinions ranging from frustration at selling the club’s prized asset midway through the season, to being ambivalent and insisting we will be better off than when the likes of Luis Suarez and Fernando Torres left before.

“Klopp did his best….the problem is that Coutinho don’t care whether or not Liverpool is relegated. I hate him not because he was wrong to go to Barcelona but why can’t he just be patient till then end of the season even when he knew quite well that we need him more than Barcelona this season.”

“Strange timing, all around. The rest of the window will be very interesting in terms of whether we immediately invest in a replacement and a new keeper, or sit tight until the summer.”
