Re: OFFICIAL SUMMER TRANSFER THREAD FEATURING EVERYBODY EXCEPT CHELSEA FC UNLESS APPEAL FUCKERY
Coutinho is still a world class player as displayed at Copa America, and the second half of 17-18 before Valverde had a chance to 'coach' all the good work Klopp had done out of him. He's been playing under an absolute fraud and coward of a manager in Valverde who doesn't have a clue how to organise high class players.
After the shambles last night, the team has now drawn 2 and lost 4 of the last 6 games without Messi, who has single-handedly kept Valverde in a job since the Roma game by being far and away the best player in the world since he took the post. Somehow he's managed to survive the two worst European humiliations in the club's history and then bottling the cup final to Valencia, purely because Messi is capable of almost solo winning the league by March every year.
Assume Coutinho comes back next season, hopefully thrives once Valverde is sacked, and Bayern sign Havertz or Sane next summer.
