The Unbelievable Tweet That Predicts Liverpool's Resurgence Following Philippe Coutinho Transfer
The days must've been a lot darker than they are now for Liverpool supporters when Philippe Coutinho left the club to sign for Barcelona.
The Brazil star was brought to Barcelona for a fee which could rise as far as £142 million, as a replacement for Neymar, who unbelievably left Barca to join Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record breaking fee of £200 million.
Coutinho has scored ten goals in 22 games already for the Spanish giants - not a bad return for a player who has just joined up with the side.
Since then, it's been a bit of a whirlwind for Liverpool. They have done superbly well on the transfer market - and, despite initial fears, they have grown stronger, earning a place in the Champions League final last campaign, where they lost 3-1 to Real Madrid.
Liverpool's recent success might've been envisioned by Klopp, but even the German could not have figure things out as neatly as this one social media user.
Check out this tweet.
My opinion, just my opinion:- Seleção Brasileira (@BrazilStat) January 7, 2018
No like-for-like player will quickly replace Coutinho's magic, but if Liverpool end up signing Alisson, Van Dijk, Keita and a good young DM like Fabinho or Weigl, they'd definitely be a much stronger side even without Coutinho.
Invest the ££ well.
That takes some level of foresight to make that prediction. Somehow all the players who this online user thought would make up a superb Liverpool team have now moved to the club.
Social media was quick to praise the predictor:
