How the Spurs fans reacted to the Coutinho links
“We get the right Coutinho we’ve all seen in the Prem then we are laughing, but it’s a gamble for sure.” @AJTHFC10
“Well worth the gamble.” @lukeherbert
“Exactly the sort of player we’re missing. Played in the Premier League, motivated seller. Definitely worth a punt.” @GarethWspurs
“I trust literally anything Conte does, so if this is what he wants then cool.” @fund_human
“I have a dream.” @YNTee_
“Expecting to wake up to the news that we’ve signed Vlahovic, Coutinho and Adama Traore. It’s Paratici month now!” @EGadenneTHFC
“Can you imagine the scenes at WHL” @WHL01
It’s been a mixed bag for Coutinho since joining Barcelona, he fulfilled a dream of his to play for the Catalan club, but has never really made an impact. He’s only been involved in 40 goals in his 106 outings.
Now that is extremely disappointing when you consider his record at Liverpool, he managed 100 goal involvements in his 201 games for the club across all competitions.
If the Brazilian magician can recapture his Anfield form, then what a signing this could be for Antonio Conte.
