Eden Hazard: What I think about Philippe Coutinho’s decision to quit Liverpool FC



Eden Hazard has backed Philippe Coutinho’s decision to move to Barcelona from Liverpool FC.
The Brazil international completed a reported £142m move to the Spanish club last week to end speculation surrounding his long-term future at the Anfield outfit.
Coutinho scored 12 goals and made eight assists in 18 starts in the Champions League and the Premier League to prove his undoubted quality.
The former Liverpool FC number 10 will link up with Argentina superstar Lionel Messi and Uruguayan forward Luis Suarez at Camp Nou.
Hazard has been regularly touted as a potential target for Barcelona’s arch rivals Real Madrid since his emergence as a top Premier League player at Chelsea.
The Belgian forward is in negotiations with Chelsea about a new long-term contract at Stamford Bridge to prompt talk of Real Madrid rekindling their interest.
Hazard issued his backing for Coutinho’s decision to move to Barcelona despite his success at Liverpool FC.
“It?s good for him. It?s bad for the Premier League because he?s one of the best players in the league,” Hazard is quoted as saying by Corriere dello Sport. “He?s a good guy. We played against each other a couple of times and he?s a fantastic player.
“OK, he chose to move to Barca, it?s not a bad choice to be fair! I just want him to be one of the best in the world and enjoy what he can do.”
Hazard has won two Premier League titles in three seasons under Jose Mourinho and then Antonio Conte.
Coutinho didn’t win the English top-flight crown with Liverpool FC but came close in the 2013-14 season.
Chelsea will take on Coutinho’s new side in the Champions League round of 16 but the Brazilian will be cup tied for Barcelona.
