These Liverpool fans convinced Philippe Coutinho is returning after ‘coming back’ post

Some Liverpool supporters are extremely excited after former star Philippe Coutinho posted a cryptic post on his Instagram story, captioned with ‘coming back’.

The Brazilian left the Merseyside outfit for Barcelona January 2018 in a mammoth deal worth up to £142m, as per BBC Sport, but the ace’s dream move has actually turned out to be a nightmare.

Coutinho’s post is certainly somewhat out of the blue, the ace has spent the season on loan with German giants Bayern Munich after his disappointing spell with the Blaugrana.

There have recently been rumours, however, that Coutinho wants a move back to Anfield, as per Kevin Palmer, with Roberto Firmino even liking a social media post reporting the story.

As seen in the picture below, the attacking midfielder could just be on the way back to Catalonia – or Bavaria for that matter, but the ‘coming back’ caption has sparked something of a response from a number of LFC supporters.

Here’s what some Liverpool supporters made of the post:

A deep trawl through the 28-year-old’s Instagram posts would show that he never writes in English with posts pertaining to Barcelona – with the exception of PR promotional bits.

The ace has posted in English since moving to Bayern though, perhaps the star is on the way back to Germany to help train with the Bundesliga champions ahead of their Champions League matches.

Coutinho has bagged nine goals and chipped in with eight assists for Hansi Flick’s side this season, the ace only featured in Bayern’s final game of the campaign after the restart due to an ankle injury.
