Video: Liverpool Fans Debate Whether Phil Coutinho Should Get a UCL Winner’s Medal

The guys over at Redmen TV have been debating whether Phil Coutinho would deserve a Champions League winner’s medal if Liverpool lift the famous trophy in May.

Coutinho, despite leaving Anfield for Barcelona in a sensational January transfer, would qualify for a medal as he played for the Reds during this year’s group stages.

In fact, it could be argued that Liverpool may have struggled to make it out of their group without the Brazil international’s sublime return of five goals and two assists in the competition.

Those achievements haven’t lasted long in the memory of these Liverpool supporters on the fan channel Redmen TV though.

The panel criticise Coutinho’s behaviour as he angled for a move to Barcelona, with one insisting Liverpool shouldn’t send the 25-year-old a medal, if they can win the final.

However, another fan has an interesting view that the club should offer him one… but only to rub it in the player’s face.

Barcelona were of course knocked out of the Champions League in dramatic circumstances on Tuesday night, with Roma completing a sensational comeback to seal a place in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile Liverpool threw their name into the hat alongside the Giallorossi, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich with a victory over Manchester City at the Etihad.

Should the club reach out to Coutinho with a medal? Or has he burned those bridges forever?
