Philippe Coutinho returns to Liverpool to say goodbye to former Reds team-mates

Philippe Coutinho has returned to Liverpool to say goodbye to his former team-mates following his £146m move to Barcelona.

Coutinho became the second most expensive player in history when he sealed his move to the Catalan club earlier this month.

The 26-year-old signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with Barcelona and made his full debut for the club in the 2-1 win over Alaves on Sunday.

Reds midfielder Adam Lallana took to Instagram to post a picture of himself alongside the Brazil international, with the caption: “Back to say his farewells… a class act this little genius.”

Coutinho is set to return to Barcelona this week in order to face Valencia in the first leg of their Copa del Rey semi-final tie at the Nou Camp.
