Liverpool news: Philippe Coutinho is Jurgen Klopp’s missing link, claims former Premier League star Clinton Morrison

Liverpool have a Philippe Coutinho-shaped hole in their midfield, according to former Premier League striker Clinton Morrison.

The Brazilian, who left the Reds in a £142million move to Barcelona in January 2018, could be returning to the Premier League this summer after a disappointing time at the Nou Camp.

Coutinho was quiet against United

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the 26-year-old playmaker – but Morrison suggests Liverpool would take him back in a heartbeat.

Towards the end of Coutinho’s Anfield career, Jurgen Klopp pushed him into a deeper midfield role to service his prolific front three.

And, according to Morrison, the club have never truly replaced Coutinho’s creativity in that area of the pitch.
