Liverpool told to bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield


Liverpool should bring Philippe Coutinho back to Anfield if they can secure him for a reasonable transfer fee

That's the opinion of former Reds star Steve McManaman, who says the Brazilian is a "wonderful" player capable of changing a game when Plan A isn't working.

Philippe Coutinho completed a £142million transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona in 2018 but  struggled to flourish with the Catalans since then.

The sitch saw the Brazilian loaned out last summer to Bayern Munich where things currently haven't worked out for him.

And It's unclear what the future now holds for the former Anfield ace, with Bundesliga champions against signing him permanently, and the 27-year-old seemingly not in Quique Setien plans at Barcelona.

Mcmanaman is backing Coutinho to find his good old days and has called the Reds to offer him an escape route - but only if Barcelona are willing to sell for a fair price.

"It could be that they opt to bring a certain Philippe Coutinho back to the club," McManaman told

"I wouldn't mind seeing Coutinho back. He's a brilliant player but a lot of it is just down to economics.

"If they can bring Coutinho back for a reasonable fee and potentially sell a couple of players who aren't playing regularly, then that could work.

"There are rumours that Xherdan Shaqiri may leave at the end of the season, and Adam Lallana may want to play more often.

"If there's space available then I'd certainly like Coutinho back, as he was a wonderful player for Liverpool. He's that type of player that when plan A isn't working he can change the game.

"He scored some incredible goals for Liverpool and though he'd have to win the fans over after he asked to leave, I think that most fans would recognise how good he was for Liverpool.

"He seems to have lost his way a bit at the minute, he needs a bit of TLC and an arm around him doesn't he?

"So if he wants to come back to Liverpool and the deal was good then I'd have no qualms taking him back because he's a lovely player."
