Philippe Coutinho’s 2011 Tweet Goes Viral After Scoring Brace In Bayern Munich 8-2 Thrashing Of Barcelona
Philippe Coutinho's tweet from 2011 has resurfaced and now become a viral hit after he scored twice against Barcelona in the Champions League.
The 28-year-old Brazilian, who signed for Barca in 2018, was loaned out to Bayern Munich last summer after his disappointing time at the Camp Nou.
But Coutinho made Barcelona regret that decision when he scored a brace en route to Bayern's emphatic 8-2 win in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Brazil international was brought on in the second half and set up the in-form Robert Lewandowski for his side's sixth goal of the match.
Coutinho's second-half cameo has now seen one of his tweets hilariously become a viral hit.
The former Liverpool star tweeted in 2011: "Hi. Today we had a game against the junior team. I scored two goals. Now at home watching a movie. bye."
Fans have hilariously wasted no time in sharing their thoughts on the tweet after it resurfaced online.
