A few years ago, before Liverpool entered its last golden era where they achieved great success, the Reds experienced difficult years, but there was a player who rekindled hopes at Anfield, although not for long.

 

At that time, three players excited Liverpool fans, as they formed one of the most powerful attacks with the most potential in European football. We are talking about Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho.

Philippe Coutinho, stayed at Liverpool longer than his two teammates and quickly won the hearts of the fans with his great performances and his enormous potential, as playing for Liverpool he was valued at 150 million euros.

However, Coutinho did not know how to be patient and after a couple of years where titles were denied to Liverpool, he decided to leave Anfield to go to FC Barcelona. But the regret came soon, because the same season in which he left, Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool won the Champions League and a year later won the Premier League, while Coutinho could not succeed at Barcelona and ended up at Aston Villa after spending, without individual success, for FC Bayern.

 

Coutinho's huge devaluation

Philippe Coutinho had the potential to be one of the best players in the world, at least that's what many thought. However, as of today his current market value is only €10 million and the latest reports claim that his future could be in Turkish football with Besiktas.
