Fábio Coentrão a Liverpool Player Already?

By on January 11, 2011

Rumours have spread that the first signing of Dalglish’s return to Anfield will be Portugese wing-back, Fábio Coentrão. But according to Wikipedia, the 22 year-old has already signed for Liverpool, and is playing with the number 39 on his shirt!

Now obviously Wikipedia is not a reliable site in which you can draw solid conclusions as to player transfers, as anyone could have changed his current club information. However, there may be some truth to the rumours that Fábio Coentrão will sign for Liverpool this January. Liverpool’s left back position is currently occupied by Paul Konchesky. He isn’t the most popular player at Liverpool at the moment, not least because of his poor form, and the consensus that the player isn’t good enough for Liverpool, as well as the fact he was signed by Roy Hodgson.

Coentrão had a brilliant World Cup, being probably the best player in the Portugal side, providing an excellent source of width, pace and the provision of crosses – all things that Liverpool currently lack. Chelsea were reportedly interested immediately after the World Cup last summer, but a deal never materialised – they do have Ashley Cole after all. Manchester United were also said to have taken an interest in the Portugese, after there were questions over Patrice Evra’s future, but it seems Evra’s future is safe at United, and with the emergence of the da Silva twins, this signing would not be needed.

However, Liverpool need another left back, with Aurelio never really showing consistency, as well as being prone to injuries as well as Paul Konchesky looking as if he will be on his way out. A fee of around £16 million is being circulated for the current Benfica man. Quite a hefty sum for a left back, one that the Liverpool owners would have to dig deep for, but a signing, I would suggest, that would be worth the money.

Tell me what you think!

    Anybody can post on Wikpedia but that being said I would be happy to welcome him to Liverpool. He is the kind of player we should have bought instead of Konchesky!

    I thought Liverpool were keen to build a team of Chelsea rejects. They’ve now even got the Chelsea reject coach and ex-player Clarke, to go with the only-talks-a-good-game Cole and poseur-kicked-out-by-Jose, Johnson. There’s talk they’re now trying for even MORE Chelsea by asking for Sturridge on loan. Soon they’ll be called the ex-Blues rather than the Reds. It’ll be a Chelsea reunion day when Liverpool next go to Stamford Bridge.

      are you mental? You picked up liverpools has-bee in torres, coach “king” kenny is always lfc, and they never wanted sturridge. Or is that league double not fresh in your mind? Kelly, liverpool’s youth is rightback, not johnson. Otherwise you’re spot on. So basically youre completely off. Why not call them THe blueshites?

    Someone probably changed the Wikipedia entries based on wishful thinking. What’s next? I could write myself into the playing staff of Liverpool.

    I guess Fabio would be a great player for Liverpool. The fact that Liverpool can’t compete at the highest level any more is some thing that doesn’t please any ardent football fan irrespective of your

    coentrao ahsley young and suarez are whats needed now and then in the summer,

    sell;

    babel, poulsen, konchseky, insua, degen, plessies, brad jones gk, el zhar, ngog, darby, aquilani, soto kyrgiakos,

    that lot would get you around; £37 million pounds recoup at least;

    that pays in itself for coentrao and suarez that we would need in jan window;

    having then just paid out for young with the owners new money, then we we would need to add;

    x1 center half,
    x1 center midfielder,
    x1 creative player, wide player

    Just the calibre of player we need at Liverpool, Coentrao would give us an attacking threat down the left and seal Konchesky’s fate as arguably as bad a signing as Rafa ever made. Only Hodgson signed worse in Poulsen 🙂

    I’d love to see Coentrao, Suarez, Mertesacker and Ashlety Young to sign although I don’t expect it to happen. The priority positions are left back and a striker followed by centre half (Skrtel has been poor) and a pacy young winger.

    i dont know if this has already been said, but eccleston is 39 and a player cant change number in a season if he has already played in it

    • LeroyB

      January 12, 2011 at 2:50 pm

      Of course a player can change number in the same season…if Eccleston goes out on loan (which is a huge possibilty) then his number (39) will become ‘free’. However, this still doesn’t mean he’s signed and this is obviously some wishful thinking by some wiki user.

      I’d love to see him in a Liverpool shirt along with Brede Hangelaand, Heiko Westermann, Alvaro Negredo and two that we have already missed out on Beckham & Ronaldinho!

    Well Sir Cecil, its shows how much the ex-rejects want to better themselves by moving to a better club, Not seen many, if any, ex-LFC players lower their standards and move to chavski. YNWA!
