I think Steve G added a bit of emotion into this. I really don’t think Aston Villa needs Coutinho that much, if I’m being honest. But Gerrard, maybe, because of their Liverpool past, feels he should give him a shot. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still a decent player but not that much!

Whilst his prime years are gone, this is some coup for such a talented footballer with alot still to offer. I really think he can be to #AVFC what Juninho was to Boro & Zola was to Chelsea in the late 90’s. Different calibre & different class who will attract more talent #UTV!

Wow… this is great news. He’s gone through so much. So glad he found a new place he can call home and be happy! Originally tweeted by Shashuri (@Xenuphrasis) on May 11, 2022.
Joining a team that has more losses than Burnley and Leeds. He was winning the Champions League two years ago. As long as he’s happy tho.! Originally tweeted by Kev Zardes (@KevinZardes) on May 11, 2022.
