"I leave Liverpool because Barcelona is a dream for me. Liverpool was a dream that I was fortunate enough to realize and I have given five years of my life to it," said Coutinho. "A career on the pitch only lasts for so long and to play for Barcelona as well as Liverpool is something I want to experience and enjoy while I am blessed enough to be able to do so. I hope the supporters understand that choosing to experience something new is not about diminishing their importance to me or the club’s importance. Nothing will ever diminish that in my heart. I wish Jurgen and the team nothing but joy and success for the rest of this season and beyond. This is an amazing team and they are getting better and better all the time."

Coutinho was introduced to Barcelona fans at the Nou Camp on Monday after signing his contract, however, his debut will be delayed by about 3 weeks because of a right leg muscle injury confirmed during his medical. The 25-year-old missed both of Liverpool's games last week because of the injury which coincided with the transfer deal being concluded. Coutinho also will not be allowed to feature for Barcelona in the Champions League knockout phase having already played for Liverpool in the competition this season. 

"I'll have plenty of time to help the club in the future," Coutinho said after signing his five-and-a-half-year contract. "Sometimes you don't get another opportunity like this, to join Barcelona, so I didn't think twice."

Brazilian international Coutinho enjoyed five years on Merseyside, growing into an in form talented goal scorer considered to be one of the most exciting football players in world football. Before Barcelona's new record £145 million signing Coutinho moved to the Nou Camp he handed in a transfer request last summer as Liverpool rebuffed three giant bids. Coutinho reserved a special statement for the Kop faithful, for whom he had become the darling of Anfield since the departure of high-scoring Luis Suarez in 2014.

“And finally, to the most important people of Liverpool, the Liverpool supporters,” Coutinho added. “I can never thank you enough for what you have given me during this time and no matter where I go in the world, for the rest of my life, I will always cherish Liverpool in my heart. You, the club and the city will always be a part of me.”

“You’ll Never Walk Alone.”

Louis Suarez played a key role in convincing his former Liverpool team-mate to swap Merseyside for Catalonia.

“A dream come true, thank you Barcelona,” the 26-year-old forward said in an Instagram message. “I can’t wait to start my journey with you!”
