Neymar mocks Coutinho in new message
Philippe Coutinho was mocked by Neymar after completing his £142m transfer from Liverpool to Barcelona on Monday, according to a report by Metro.UK.
Coutinho, 25 is the third most-expensive signing in world football behind Kylian Mbappe and Neymar after he secured his long-awaited move. He was mocked by Neymar who pointed out Coutinho’s hairstyle-related dig at Camp Nou on Monday in a playful manner.
‘Very happy for you, I wish you every success in the world, I’m sure you’ll be very happy,’ the Paris Saint-Germain forward wrote on Instagram. But then the Brazilian added at the end of his message: ‘And tell me, is this hair in fashion?’
Coutinho, meanwhile, has revealed that he consulted Neymar about joining Barcelona in the build-up to his move to the La Liga leaders. ‘I spoke to Neymar and he has nothing but good things to say about the team, the city and the dressing room,’ said the midfielder. ‘I also spoke to Luis Suarez and also Paulinho, and they also had good things to say. ‘He [Suarez] has been house hunting for me. He is a good friend. ‘We had good period together in Premier League. ‘It’s an honour to play with him again.’
Coutinho added about Suarez’s involvement in his move from Liverpool to Barcelona: ‘I am very happy to play with him again, he’s a great player. He wrote to me a lot, he’s a very close friend. ‘We had a great spell at Liverpool, we almost won the league. He’s a great friend and it’s a great honour to be able to play with him. He told me how the club and city was and it made me want to come here even more.’
