Philippe Coutinho left Anfield for the Nouakchott Camp in the January transfer window. He had scored 5 goals in the first stage of the UEFA competition for Liverpool.
With Liverpool winning both legs of the quarter against Manchester City with an astonishing 5- 1 aggregate. They are through to the semi-final and if everything goes well Coutinho might just get a Medal .
With the restrictions by UEFA he was unable to play for Barcelona. In their quarter final lose again Roma. Hence, he could still be able to receive a medal if Liverpool wins the final. After all said and done the Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp would have to decide. The winning team gets 40 medals to share among the team.
I would think it would be wrong to award a player that no longer serves the team with a medal. He Coutinho also knew if he left Liverpool he would play no part in the UEFA championship. If I were a player I would refuse the medal. I would rather believe that I would be able to get one with my new team, in the future. If he does except it, I would not hold anything against him. He might feel he did his part in helping Liverpool.
I would like to know what your feelings are ?.
