Liverpool fans have given his take on Barcelona attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho on Twitter following his performance in the Copa del Rey final against Valencia at the weekend.
Barcelona took on La Liga rivals Valencia in the final of Copa del Rey at Estadio Benito Villamarin in Sevilla.
Coutinho started the match and played for the entire 90 minutes, as the Blaugrana lost 2-1.
The Brazil international, who can also operate as a winger, struggled to make an impact, and lacked creativity and imagination.
The former Inter Milan man has really struggled at Barcelona since he moved to the Spanish giants from Liverpool in January 2018 for an initial transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £105 million.
Coutinho, who was a real star at Liverpool and was hugely popular among the Anfield faithful, made 16 starts and two substitute appearances in La Liga for Barca during the second half of last season, scoring eight goals and providing five assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
The Brazilian made 22 starts and 12 substitute appearances in La Liga for Barca this campaign, scoring five goals and providing two assists in the process, according to WhoScored.
Coutinho is struggling to play at his best for Barcelona, and Liverpool fans have given their take on his situation at Camp Nou on Twitter.

Looks like Coutinho’s Barca career went well haha— Shamu (@ShxmvLFC) May 26, 2019
Coutinho deserves all the hate he's getting. He left a team that appreciated him more than any other club ever would, at a time that could've potentially destroyed our top 4 aspirations, by faking injuries and forcing his way out. He gets no sympathies whatsoever from me.— Robbo The (@TheLFCMark) May 26, 2019
Coutinho should come back to epl or better yet even just back home @LFC— bubbly butterfly (@miss_suelani) May 26, 2019
I’d rather be a club legend, have a stand named after me or a statue built in my honour than win a few empty trophies I didn’t even contribute to. I’m 99% sure Coutinho regrets moving. Barca fans want him gone. They know it, we know it, and he knows it. #lfc— Robbieeeee (@KloppsLegion) May 26, 2019
Barca lose and Coutinho is trending— EddieLfc (@edem_Lfc) May 26, 2019
These players that force a move and basically become a bum at their new clubs must hate themselves. O.Dembele, Coutinho, Sanchez come to mind but sure there’s more.— ® (@N22_LFC) May 26, 2019
