Jordan Henderson has hailed former teammate Philippe Coutinho amid speculation over a return to Liverpool this summer.
Coutinho played alongside Henderson before leaving Anfield for Barcelona for £142million in 2018.
But the Brazil international has struggled in La Liga and has spent this season on loan at Bayern Munich.
A number of Premier league clubs including Chelsea, Tottenham and Newcastle are said to be interested, but the playmaker favours a move to Liverpool, and has reportedly spoken to Jurgen Klopp about a potential return.
And amid the speculation of an Anfield reunion, Henderson has opened up on his admiration for the midfielder.
“[Coutinho is] So good as a player, technically,” he told Rio Ferdinand on The Locker Room.
“Again just loved playing football, wanted to be out there enjoying playing football. Such a top player and a great lad as well.”
