March 15, 2019

Former Liverpool star Danny Murphy has said that the Reds may not welcome the prospect of re-signing Philippe Coutinho from Barcelona, should the opportunity arise at the end of the season. The Brazil international made the switch from Anfield to the Camp Nou during the winter of 2018 and he has since racked over 50 appearances for the Spanish champions.

Despite this, he has not made a huge mark on the league standings over the past 13 months and this has recently spread the speculation that the Blaugrana may sanction his sale during the summer.

Former Liverpool defender Danny Murphy believes Loris Karius may have played his final game in the Reds shirt after his Champions League final showing against Real Madrid. The German footballer was guilty of making two calamitous errors during the match and this eventually cost the Reds, who lost the final by a 3-1 scoreline.

Speaking after the game, Murphy sympathised for the shot-stopper but does not feel that he would feature in the Liverpool shirt again, he told TalkSPORT: “I actually feel sorry for him, I really do. Nobody goes into a game wanting to make mistakes. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’ll play in a Liverpool shirt again. I think it’s impossible for him. I think the magnitude of the mistakes, the enormity of the game, the supporters will struggle with him being in goal for them and the continual ribbing he will get week in week out where ever he goes, that’s going to be huge pressure for him and I just can’t see him playing again.”
