Philippe Coutinho Breaks Silence Over Failed FC Barcelona Move

By Keegan Kruger - Sep 18, 2017 02:13 PM @KeeganKruger

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has broken his silence after his move to FC Barcelona in the latest transfer window failed to materialise.

The Brazil international, who reportedly handed in a transfer request at his Merseyside club last month after hearing that the Blaugrana were interested in signing him, has now spoken about the situation that unfolded.

"What happened is that I received an offer, and in life sometimes you're interested, and sometimes you're not, but in my case, as everyone knows, I was interested and so was my family," Coutinho told ESPN Brasil.

"It was a difficult month for me, but now it's all over, and I must focus on having a good season, helping my team, thinking about Liverpool and the national team.

"I've always respected Liverpool, the fans, the players and their board members.

"It's a great honour to receive an offer from a great club, but so is being here. Liverpool is a great club."

Liverpool is also an ambitious team. Coutinho has a contract and he must honour it

Liverpool held you back boy. You would have made a great partnership with Messi and Suarez
