Coutinho not surprised by Liverpool success: But I don't regret leaving

Philippe Coutinho admits he's not surprised about Liverpool's ascension to the Premier League summit.

But the Brazilian does not regret leaving the club for Barcelona in 2018, despite struggling with the Catalan giants and being sent out on loan to Bayern Munich.

"Liverpool is flying, and it doesn't surprise me," he told Sports Illustrated. "We've seen it already last year when they won the Champions League, but I'm also not surprised because of their fantastic squad and manager.

"I am so happy for them, because I have so many friends there, former team-mates, so I'm just so happy for them, but that's all.

"I don't look back. I took another path, and now I am on another journey, much like everyone else. I'm focused entirely – just like them – on reaching my dreams. I'm happy with what I did in the past, and now I can only look forward."
