Last weekend, the soap opera Philippe Coutinho has finally ended. After weeks or even months of suspense, the Brazilian left Liverpool to realize his « dream » and join FC Barcelona. A huge blow on the transfer market, valued at not less than 160 million euros (bonus included). What sadden the fans of the Reds including former captain Steven Gerrard. The latter made it known by sending a sublime message to Coutinho.
« It hurts that you’re gone because you’re a special player, on the field I shared the best moments with you. I want to wish you and your family all the best for the next stage of your career in Barcelona. Thank you for the special moments and memories of the past 5 years. You Will Never Walk Alone, « wrote the Englishman on Instagram.
In the process, the neo-Barcelonan responded with a message just as loud: « Steve, thank you very much for these kind words. It was an honor for me to play with a legend like you. I learned a lot from you, out of the field, in my family life, and in the field. Thank you for your support and encouragement during my years in Liverpool. Your self-confidence has helped me become a better player. I wish you all the best for you and your family. « That’s football too.
