    Former Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho reveals he does not feel any pang of regret after moving from Liverpool to Barcelona in the January transfer window. The second most expensive player in the world says he feels justified over his move to Barcelona as he's set to finish the season with the Copa and La Liga title Double.

    Coutinho left Liverpool in January to the anger of most Liverpool who wanted him to stay with them at least to the end of the season, Liverpool fans feared the worst for their club after Coutinho sealed his dream move to Barcelona in the January.

    Liverpool's manager Jurgen Kloop would do anything to keep the player at Anfield until the summer but could not convince the club to keep their star man after Barça tabled an astonishing £142 million bid. Liverpool sensibly decided to invest most of the Coutinho money on a new centre-back whose coming out a stop to the club's defenses crisis.

    Mohamed Salah stepped up and comfortably took Coutinho place, his combination with Mane and Firminho has been great and Coutinho wasn't missed at all. Liverpool look certain to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League and now have a real chance of winning the Champions League securing a place in the Champions League final.

    Following their 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday night, fans hope Coutinho pays the same price for leaving their club in the lurch midway through the current campaign, some have been tweeting Coutinho, calling him the new Michael Owen.

    Some of the shady tweets by Liverpool fans
    * Hey @Phil_Coutinho there was this bloke called Michael Owen, he thought he was pretty smart too going to Real in 2005... anyway long story short he didn’t win the Champions League that year but he would have if he wasn’t quite so smart.

    * How u feeling @Phil_Coutinho ???? Hahaha may be u should of hold out 6 month dickhead I see another Owen in you hahahahaha life goes on great with out you

    Coutinho have revealed he's happy with his decision to move to the Camp Nou, a decision that has given him the opportunity to plays with some of the best legs in the game of football.

    "Playing next to those big cracks ... Iniesta, Messi, Suárez, Paulinho ... It's really easy, of course, if you receive the ball in the right conditions, you have to return it in good condition," he told Desimpedidos.

    "Before coming to Barcelona , I spoke with Ney ... I talked a lot with Luis, playing in Barcelona was always a dream, I always wanted to play here, and when the opportunity presented itself, I did not hesitate. Playing next to big cracks, great idols also motivated me."

    On the prospect of taking Leo Messi's No10 shirt, Coutinho added: "I do not dream of inheriting Messi's No10 shirt at Barça, the 10 is his and I hope we can continue playing together for many years."

    Football fans and pundit reckon it could be Liverpool's year in the Champions League this season, do you agree? Have a say, drop your comments below.

    I agree with you, but it would have been more glorious if he helped Liverpool win the Champions League before moving. Imagine the way he would have been celebrated.
