Could Re-signing This Star Be The Key to Ending Liverpool’s Premier League Title Drought?


Liverpool points haul of 97 last term would’ve been enough to win the Premier League in all but one of the 26 previous seasons, but nonetheless they were powerless to stop Pep Guardiola’s Man City side from taking the title.

It’s fair to say therefore that Jurgen Klopp will face a similar mountain in 2019/20 and it’s a peak that he could find next to impossible to scale, unless he finds a player or two who can lead his side to make that one extra step towards ending a domestic title drought that is nearing on 30 years.

If you fancy placing a wager on Liverpool to end their long wait for a domestic title then at 101greatgoals.com you will find the top football betting tips. The lengthy wait was almost ended by Brendan Rodgers, prior to his side’s ‘slip-up’ against Chelsea but Klopp came an extra step closer, with the title going all the way down to the wire in May.

One player who could well be the missing piece of the jigsaw is a creative midfielder who left the club 18 months ago, Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool helped salvage Coutinho’s career when they stumped up £8.5m to end the playmaker’s stint at Inter Milan. At the time the Rio born talent was very much treading water, invariably tagged as a player with obvious talents who was unable to perform to the best of his abilities for a prolonged period.

Over the course of his time at Anfield, under both Brendan Rodgers and Klopp, Coutinho matured and steadily delivered over his early seasons on Merseyside before growing and flourishing in the glow of a club, and fanbase, that adored him.

Indeed that adoration was of such magnitude that when he decided the time was right to move on, and the club happily accepted a massive £105m from Barcelona for his services, the fans understood Coutinho’s decision and more importantly respected the five years of service he offered the club.

The capture of Coutinho wouldn’t come cheap but such a move would show great intent and would show Man City that they can’t simply buy the title.

On the subject of title talk, Liverpool’s odds of securing the Premier League are pretty short at the moment but you can get 23/10 with PaddyPower and that isn’t a bad bet given just how close Klopp’s men came last term.

Coral are offering a competitive 7/1 on Liverpool securing back to back Champions League titles and that is a very tempting bet, especially if backed each-way.

However, things haven’t worked out that well for the creative attacking midfielder since his move to Catalonia.

While Barcelona won the La Liga title last season it’s fair to say that Coutinho flattered to deceive a great deal and the Nou Camp side’s inability to pick up a Champions League title is seen by the club’s fans as something of a failure, such are the club’s high standards.

Coutinho racked up just five goals in 33 La Liga matches and that’s a rather paltry return and rumours are rife that Barcelona are ready to consider big money offers for the player, not least as they are interested in bringing Neymar back to the club and would therefore need to balance the books in order to meet UEFA’s FFP (Financial Fair Play) guidelines.

Klopp would do well to consider a move to bring the 27-year-old back to Liverpool as his guile and end product could well serve to give his side’s midfield a boost, offering a genuine connection between the midfield and his stellar front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Fimino.

In much the same way Bernardo Silva acted so well as a bridge for Guardiola’s midfield and attack, so too could Coutinho.

If there is one area where Liverpool could improve, as well as the addition of a world-class central defensive partner for Virgil Van Dijk, then it’s the addition of a creative midfielder to put alongside the passing skill of a Jordan Henderson or Georginho Wijnaldum and a strong defensive midfielder such as Fabinho.
