Coutinho not surprised by Liverpool success: But I don't regret leaving

Coutinho not surprised by Liverpool success: But I don't regret leaving

Coutinho is struggling to make an impact in Germany too, and various reports claim Barcelona are ready to let him go for £77 million.

The 27-year-old South American struggled to make his mark with the Liga heavyweights and is now taking in a loan spell at Bayern Munich.

Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona back in January 2018, with the Catalan giants adamant he could fire them to Champions League glory. "We saw that previous year when they won the Champions League, but it's not a surprise either because of their fantastic team and their manager".

"I'm focused entirely on this new journey and hoping to reach my dreams just like everyone else".

I am so happy for them, because I have so many friends there, former team-mates, so I'm just so happy for them.

Despite Coutinho's occasional issues at Bayern, Hansi Flick - who is in charge at least until the end of the season - recently offered words of encouragement for him, and the Brazil global has been impressed by the former assistant of Niko Kovac.

"I don't look back".

"Liverpool is flying, and it doesn't surprise me", the Brazilian stated.

Liverpool and Philippe Coutinho have had contrasting fortunes since their parting, though the Brazilian is not shocked by the Reds' form.

But the money generated from Coutinho's departure - sanctioned at the same time as Virgil van Dijk's arrival for £75m - helped fund a move for worldwide compatriot Alisson Becker, as well as sealing a transfer for defensive midfielder Fabinho. "If you recall, when he left two years ago, then it was a complete change of style of play and we [hardly] lost a game over the balance of the season".

"Supporters love to argue about the merits of how a title team is constructed as if there is a right or wrong way - what Klopp is achieving at Anfield is more a triumph of coaching and management, aided by skilled recruitment, than the flexing of financial muscle".

This season Coutinho is on loan to Bayern Munich and the Germans have an option to buy but it looks increasingly likely that he will return to the Camp Nou at the end of the campaign. Coutinho says he's looking forward but Liverpool would certainly not be a backwards step.
