Philippe Coutinho had made a surprise admission by claiming that he is happy that Liverpool won the Champions League. Coutinho quit the Reds in January 2018 to join Barcelona for a fee of around £142million. Since then Liverpool have reached two finals and triumphed this year by winning Tottenham 2-0. Liverpool beat Coutinho’s Barcelona in the semi-final in May, coming back from a 3-0 deficit from the first leg to win 4-3 on aggregate. Neil Mellor says Coutinho will not be happy with that result but pleased to see fellow Brazil internationals Alisson, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino succeed. “That will be a question for him,” Mellor told americangambler.com when asked if Coutinho would be happy at Liverpool's victory. “But I think he will be happy for Alison, Fabinho and his Brazilian compatriots but maybe not so happy that his side were knocked out in the semi-finals the way that they were.” “I think Coutinho was a great player for Liverpool and I really did enjoy watching him,” he added. “He had creative influence to make things happen and of course, I was disappointed when he left. “Leaving for Barcelona for whatever reason, he hasn’t shown the same quality at Barcelona that he did at Liverpool.
