Liverpool Fans Want Coutinho Back After 'Telepathic Link Up' With Firmino For Brazil
The 'telepathic link-up' between Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho for Brazil has got Liverpool fans talking.
Coutinho scored twice as Brazil beat Bolivia 3-0 to open their 2019 Copa America campaign with a victory.
The Barcelona man broke the deadlock in the second-half. He then doubled his side's advantage three minutes later thanks to a sublime pass from ex-Liverpool teammate 'Bobby' Firmino.
He linked up brilliantly with Coutinho who headed home his second goal of the game.
And following his two-goal haul, Liverpool fans immediately took to social media to make their feelings known about Coutinho.
Seeing the highlights of Coutinho and Firmino linking up again for Brazil :confused:. Fucking love to see him back at Anfield this year, Some of the footy that front 4 played for Liverpool before he left was fucking spectacular. Best I've ever seen in fact. #Magician pic.twitter.com/5oI5DSOShg- Cal (@CalTheBal) June 15, 2019

Coutinho secured an initial £105 million transfer to Barcelona in 2018, though he's failed to make an impression in Spain.
As a result, his future has been subject to intense transfer speculation with a host of clubs around Europe reportedly keeping tabs on him. From Chelsea to Manchester United not to mention Liverpool.
And speaking after Brazil's win, Coutinho issued an update on his career.
"I don't have much to say to Barcelona fans," he said.
"I'm grateful for all the support they've always given me. I've had difficult moments because I've not performed as well as they were expecting on the pitch. But that's football and I'm working hard to improve."
