Liverpool supporters hijacked Barcelona’s birthday post on Philippe Coutinho, by reminding their former midfielder of their recent Champions League triumph.
Coutinho handed in a transfer request to force a move to the La Liga champions in January 2018. It appears Liverpool fans have not forgotten his decision to turn his back on the club.
The Brazilian playmaker turned on Wednesday (today) and Liverpool fans took the opportunity to mock their former player.
Barcelona tweeted “Happy Birthday Coutinho” with a GIF of their £146 million signing, before Liverpool fans quickly posted their response.
One Liverpool fan wrote “have a good day, Coutinho” along with a picture of Virgil van Dijk and Alisson, celebrating after their Champions League final win earlier this month.
Another fan, Anfield96YNWA, also rubbed salt in the wound by posting a picture of Mohamed Salah hugging the Champions League trophy in a plane, following their win over Tottenham.
Coutinho’s future remains unclear, after what proved to be a difficult first full season at the Nou Camp.
He scored just five goals in 34 La Liga appearances.
