Liverpool have announced the permanent departure of Allan Rodrigues de Souza to Clube Atletico Mineiro and plenty of fans of the Brazilian club took to the Reds Twitter page to give their thoughts.
On Thursday, Liverpool confirmed that the 22-year-old had finalised a move back to his native Brazil after four-and-a-half years on the books of the Anfield side, joining Atletico for a reported £3.2million fee (Liverpool Echo).
The Merseyside outlet also reported that Liverpool have negotiated a 10 percent sell-on clause for the midfielder, who due to work permit issues was restricted to six loan moves during his time at the Reds.
Allan had joined Liverpool for a reported £500,000 fee from Internacional in the summer of 2015 and, even though he impressed Jurgen Klopp in training - according to Goal.com - he was never able to make a senior appearance for the Reds.
He has spent time with SJK, Sint-Truiden, Hertha Berlin, Apollon Limassol, Eintracht Frankfurt and Fluminense - and it's at the latter club where he particularly impressed, and although they reportedly wanted to snap him up, Atletico have beat them to his signature.
Needless to say there are a lot of Atletico fans very happy with the Reds on social media:
