Ex-Liverpool Star Delivers Champions League Blow To Rivals Man Utd
Liverpool fans would have been delighted after one of their former players delivered a knockout blow to the chances of fierce rivals Manchester United in this season’s Champions League.
Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has not enjoyed the best of careers at the Nou Camp since his big transfer from Liverpool last year but the Brazilian would have been elated with his performance in the second leg Champions League last eight clash with Manchester United.
The Brazilian national team player scored one of the goals as Manchester United were thrashed 3-0 by Barcelona away from home thus completing a 4-0 aggregate win for the hosts.
Coutinho and his Barcelona team have recorded a 1-0 win over the Red Devils at the Theatre of Dreams last week Wednesday.
Manchester United went in search of an away goal in the first minutes of the game but Barcelona were able to weather that brief storm to deliver two goals within four first-half minutes through star player Lionel Messi though Red Devils shot-stopper David De Gea should have done better with the shot for the second goal from the phenomenal Messi.
Coutinho added a third goal shortly after the hour mark to wrap up both the game and the tie for the Spanish La Liga leaders.
