Peter Moor

Italy is Countinho's Only Option

Liverpool chief Peter Moor has acknowledged that there has been a change in the style of play since the departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona. The Brazil international made the switch to the Camp Nou during the winter of 2018 and there has since been a steady progression at the club, who are presently on course to win their maiden Premier League.

Speaking to the Liverpool Cape Town supporters’ group, Moore accepted that the Reds have played differently since the departure of Coutinho with manager Jurgen Klopp preferring to play three in the midfield. He added that the club also benefited financially from the sale of the Brazilian, given they were able to sign the likes of Fabinho and Alisson Becker.
