‘What a man!’ – Delighted Liverpool fans full of praise for star after post-match heroics

Liverpool ace Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped in to support teammate Philippe Coutinho on Sunday, and supporters were absolutely loving it.

After putting in a great performance in the 4-0 win over Bournemouth as the Reds continued their impressive form in recent weeks, Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Coutinho for the post-match interview with Sky Sports.

Naturally, the Brazilian’s future at Anfield was a talking point and as he slightly struggled to give an answer on it, Oxlade-Chamberlain interjected and gave his opinion on the matter.

Further, he also subtly hit out at the question from the reporter, as he insisted that there were no doubts over Coutinho’s commitment to Liverpool both on and off the pitch, and he ultimately shut down the line of questioning which would have been much appreciated by his teammate.

“He’s been top quality since the start and every time he gets on the pitch he does his all for the club and that’s the most important thing,” he said, as seen in the video below.

“It is not fair to ask those sort of questions, I don’t think. He gives us his all every game and that is all we can ask for.”

If his display wasn’t enough, his heroics in the interview earned him even more praise from Liverpool fans, as seen in the tweets below, as he continued to delight them even after the full-time whistle.

Fair play to Oxlade-Chamberlain, it would have been easy to just let it slide and let Coutinho continue to struggle batting away the question but he stepped in and showed great support and leadership. Liverpool fans are delighted, and rightly so…
