'Nobody cares about Coutinho': Barca ace mocked as Liverpool reach Champions League final
Philippe Coutinho left Liverpool in January

LIVERPOOL legend Mark Lawrenson says nobody is talking about Philippe Coutinho the Reds reached the Champions League final.

Coutinho left Liverpool in January after forcing a move to Barcelona.

The Brazilian helped Barcelona to win La Liga on Sunday but he will miss out on a potential Champions League winners medal.

And Lawrenson praised Liverpool for reaching the final without Coutinho.

Lawrenson told BBC Radio 5 Live: "No-one says anything about Philippe Coutinho anymore.

"I actually thought when he left it might unsettle Roberto Firmino with his mate leaving, but actually, he has stepped up to the plate and been brilliant."

Liverpool midfielder James Milner paid credit to his team-mates but turned his attention to Sunday’s clash with Chelsea.

He told BT Sport: ”I don't know what to say after that. We know how to make it interesting, don't we? That's what it is all about though - these scenes right here.

"We know we need to do better to see out games. All in all I thought we played quite well but could have controlled it better.

"Nobody said getting to the Champions League final is easy and we've beaten some great teams on the way.

"It was about getting the job done and now we're through to the final. We have to enjoy this but not for too long as we have another important game this weekend."
