Philippe Coutinho scored a trademark long-range goal in the Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United last night.
Barcelona midfielder Coutinho, was used to star in Liverpool’s team, scored a goal that Reds fans saw so often.
Cutting inside from a central-left position, the Brazilian curled a long-range strike into the top corner, leaving David De Gea with no chance.
With Barcelona already 2-0 up on the night and 3-0 up on aggregate, Coutinho’s goal just added to Man United’s embarrassment.
And given his links to Liverpool, it would have made the moment even sweeter for the 26-year-old.
Liverpool fans perceive Coutinho differently. Some criticise him for forcing a move to Barcelona, while others remember just how good he was in a red shirt.
The skilful midfielder netted 54 goals in 201 games for Liverpool after completing a switch from Inter Milan.
After his goal in the Champions League last night, Liverpool fans swarmed to social media to discuss Coutinho’s performance and wonder strike against the Red Devils.
Here are some of the best tweets from Liverpool fans about Coutinho dumping Man United out of the Champions League.
