Liverpool fans will be delighted that Philippe Coutinho’s back injury has seemingly cleared up.

The Brazilian hasn’t played for Liverpool all season but was fit enough to play for his country against Ecuador on Thursday night. The midfielder came on as a second-half substitute and scored as Brazil ran out 2-0 winners.

And Coutinho’s emotions were for all to see during his celebration.

After finding the back of the net, the 25-year-old grabbed his shirt passionately before appearing to cry.

What did those tears mean?


While the English transfer window has closed, there’s still a chance Coutinho can become a Barcelona player with the Spanish transfer window not closing until midnight on Friday.

It’s certainly going to be an interesting day.

And as Liverpool fans wait anxiously, they will be looking for clues as to what will actually happen today.

Reports state that Barca will return with a £138 million bid, while Spanish media claim that Liverpool have agreed to sell him but he will only leave next summer.

Until it’s officially confirmed though, there will be speculation. And Coutinho himself has fuelled that with his latest Instagram.

The Brazilian hasn’t taken to social media throughout the summer - with his last post before today being on August 1.

But after scoring for Brazil, he posted an image of him celebrating with the words: “Thank you, God.”

Coutinho may have just been thanking God after scoring for his country but Liverpool and Barcelona fans were sent into a frenzy.

Many Liverpool fans were abusing him, telling him to leave while Barca fans were trying to convince him to join.

Despite Coutinho handing in a transfer request and missing the start of the campaign, Jurgen Klopp has insisted that the relationship between the pair is still very good.

"You ask if everything is okay between me and him - of course. Absolutely. 100 per cent,” the German manager said earlier this summer.
