It may be coming up to three years since Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool for Barcelona but he still continues to showcase his allegiance to the Reds.

The attacking midfielder left Anfield for the Nou Camp in January 2018 in a transfer that has not gone entirely to plan.

Coutinho failed to recapture his Liverpool form at Barcelona to begin with, moving on loan to Bayern Munich last season, just six months after joining the Catalan side.

Now back at with the Catalan giants, he has found a new lease of life under recently-appointed manager Ronald Koeman.

Yet the Brazil international appears to still have a soft spot for Liverpool if his car is anything to go by.

The Brazilian is continuing to use his old licence plate, which ends in LFC - a detail spotted by some eagle-eyed fans on a Tik Tok video of the 28-year-old driving his Mercedes.

Having left Liverpool nearly three years ago, it is unclear why Coutinho is yet to adopt a new licence plate - although, with his future previously up in the air after his year-long stint at Bayern Munich, it is perhaps understandable he is yet to get Spanish number plates.

Coutinho was linked with a shock return to England in the summer, with Chelsea and Arsenal both rumoured to be eyeing moves for him.

Yet he was instead reintegrated into Barca's first-team by Koeman, who took over as manager in the summer.

Koeman's decision has been rewarded by a return to form for Coutinho, who has scored two goals in six games so far this season.

The Barca boss feels that Coutinho's form has been helped by newfound confidence and regular football.

He told Sport : "That's a good question and the answer is very easy: he's a very good player. That's it.

"He's a player that learned a lot in England, a lot in Bayern Munich.

"My job as a coach is to get the best out of every player.

"And that starts by putting them in their position. I think that generates more confidence.

"All that helps but it starts with the quality in the player and Coutinho's a great player."
