Brazilian legend Ronaldinho has given a huge blow to Liverpool fans by advising their superstar Philipe Coutinho to join Barcelona in the summer.

Coutinho was named Liverpool’s player of the year after his wonderful season at Anfield. Coutinho’s efforts saw him get in to PFA’s Premier League team of the season as well.

It seems, Coutinho’s efforts this season has not gone unnoticed by the watchful eyes of Ronaldinho. Former Barcelona superstar wants Coutinho to bring-back the samba magic at Camp Nou.

Ronaldinho thinks that, Coutinho would be the ideal signig for the Catalan giants especially with Xavi’s exit from the club and Andres Iniesta in the wrong side of 30’s will give Coutinho the ideal opportunity to become a better player.

Speaking to a local newspaper, Ronaldinho said: “Coutinho has had a fantastic season – he has been one of the best midfield players in Europe – and when you think he has been playing in a team that has not been performing well that is an even bigger achievement,”

“I can’t speak for him and I can’t speak for Barcelona – but I know what Barcelona look for in a player and he has all those qualities.”

“After all those years at the club Xavi has left and Iniesta is now in his 30s – they will need to address that. That is why I think Barcelona and Coutinho would be the perfect fit.

“Playing with great players makes you better, I know that. Not only would he win trophies with Barcelona, but playing with Neymar, Messi, Suarez, Iniesta, is going to make him a better player.”
