PSG ace issues WARNING to Liverpool over star player.
Paris Saint-Germain and former Chelsea defender David Luiz has warned Liverpool that they could face losing star player Philippe Coutinho if they miss out on Champions League qualification again this season.
The Brazilian international is known for being something of an outspoken character, and has aimed a dig at one of his old rival clubs after suggesting Coutinho could look to quit Anfield for a bigger side.

“Coutinho made the choice to stay at Liverpool without Champions League football this season. I don’t think he will make that choice again,” Luiz is quoted in the Daily Mirror.
“The best need to be playing with the best. Coutinho is the best midfield player in England right now. That is great for him, but when you play at that level the big clubs will notice you.
“If Liverpool don’t qualify this season for the Champions League, I am sure he will be the most in demand player in Europe next summer.”
