Why I Left Liverpool for Barcelona – Coutinho Speaks After Being Unveiled at Nou Camp (Photos)
Brazilian playmaker, Philippe Coutinho, was on Sunday, unveiled by Barcelona at the Nou Camp after completing his £145million move from Liverpool, as he was spotted wearing a club tracksuit as he posed for photographers with a beaming smile.
According to Dailymail Sports, the ex-Liverpool star who will be officially unveiled in front of fans on the Nou Camp pitch until Monday afternoon, was presented to the media following Barcelona’s routine 3-0 victory over Levante in La Liga.
Speaking while addressing fans on Instagram, Coutinho said in English: ‘Hi Barca fans. I am here. It is a dream come true and I hope to see you tomorrow.’
Coutinho’s transfer saga started in the summer transfer window on Saturday after Liverpool and Barcelona agreed the second-biggest transfer fee in history when the player signed a five-and-a-half-year deal which contains a €400m (£354m) release clause.
“I’m living the dream. I want to play with great players like Messi, Busquets, Iniesta, Piqué, and Suárez. I hope to play with joy and I want to win titles for the fans. I want to learn a lot.
“I’m happy. I’m very happy. I want to make the fans happy. My goal is to win titles and to bring joy and happiness to Barça fans. I also get to play with many cracks.”
