Former Barcelona and Arsenal icon, Thierry Henry has advised Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho to follow the same path taken by Luis Suarez, urging the Brazilian to remain at Anfield for one more season.
Henry feels that putting in one more stellar season at Anfield will benefit both the player and the club.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the Frenchman feels that Coutinho should remain with his current club and make a move to Spain next summer, just as Suarez did.
He said, “It’s difficult for me to talk about [the Coutinho situation] because whenever I wanted to leave a club, I just left, so I don’t know what it’s like having to stay when you want to leave.”
“I would advise him to do what Luis Suarez did. He wanted to leave, we all knew, though it wasn’t for the same club at the time. But he came back [for Liverpool], acted professionally and had an amazing season. He [Coutinho] strikes me as a similar type of guy.
“Maybe he wants to go, but he should come back — Liverpool fans are going to love him and he loves the club. Come back, have a good season and see what happens next year. Follow the path of Suarez,” Henry said.
