The news on the Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona story continues to heat up. And Liverpool fans are not happy about the possible exit of the Brazilian this winter transfer window.

Today, Matt Le Tissier, former Southampton player, was criticized by a Liverpool fan for supporting Coutinho.

“Surely Liverpool should do right by him and let him have his dream move now,” the ex-player had tweeted.

“I don’t think you understand what it’s like when a club taps up your player,” a fan grumbled.

Le Tissier’s reply? “I understand, Liverpool did it with me.”

It just goes to show you how common tapping up is, despite it being against the rules.
