Philippe Coutinho told he's still "adored" by Liverpool players and welcome to return


Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho would be welcomed back at Liverpool because his former team-mates still “adore him”.

That’s the opinion of Reds captain Jordan Henderson, who on the other hand has admitted that the Brazilian has moved on from Liverpool.

Coutinho completed a sensation £142million move to Barcelona in 2018 but failed to hit the ground running and struggled for first-team football.

The Brazilian was sent out on loan to Bayern Munich in the summer, with Barcelona hoping the German giants would later make the deal a permanent one.

But Bayern have no plans to do this, meaning Coutinho is set to be in limbo when the season comes to a close.

In the face of the 27-year-old midfielder’s predicament, Coutinho has been linked with a return to Anfield in recent weeks.

And Henderson has suggested that while this is unlikely, he’d be welcomed back to Liverpool with open arms.

“Phil is a good friend of mine,” Henderson told Spanish news outlet  SPORT.“I think he’s an exceptional footballer, he has it all, he has a great attitude and he loves football.
