It has been some time now since he was sacked by Liverpool, but Brendan Rodgers continues to have a sense of warmth towards his old club.
The Scot was recently questioned about Philippe Coutinho’s future with Liverpool, the player he bought for a meagre sum of £8.5 million from Inter Milan back in 2013 and who is now a primary target of FC Barcelona.
And Rodgers was considerate in his thoughts and believes he will stay put at the Kop. The former Reds boss said the ball is still in Liverpool’s court, and Coutinho would make the right choice by continuing to pledge his allegiance to the Merseyside club.
The diminutive Brazilian is targeted to replace Neymar, who left for a world record fee to Paris St. Germain and is seen as the ideal man to fill the void.
As expected Rodgers’ comments have gone down well with the fans, check out the video below –
Brendon knows the score. Still doing quality LFC PR work two years after being sacked. The greatest. pic.twitter.com/bXAvGFVJ6O
