Right after the transfer window was shut down, with his hope of joining Barcelona remaining… just a hope, Philippe Coutinho was reported to be frustrated and unwilling to return to Liverpool, but a Brazil legend has no doubt that this is not the case.
The Liverpool fans have nothing to worry about – I do not believe any of the stories about him refusing to play for the club. I know him that is not his way
Ronaldinho was quoted saying by the Daily Star.
This season they will see him give everything for the club – that is the sort of player he is
the former Barcelona star said, before adding an extra sentence that makes perfect sense, no matter how someone looks at Coutinho’s failed attempt to join Barcelona.
No player is going to refuse to play when it’s the World Cup at the end of the season
the Brazilian said, knowing how important it is, not just to Coutinho but all players, to be with their national team in the biggest competition in the world.
As for Barcelona, Ronaldinho feels that the Blaugrana will return for his fellow countryman, especially if he further progresses as a player these next ten months.
They made it clear how much they wanted him and I am sure that they will come back for him
the former Barcelona player himself said.
