Liverpool's American owner John W Henry was spotted on the tube heading to Wembley for last night's international friendly between England and Brazil.

The Mirror report that the Reds owner wanted to be present to see Philippe Coutinho make his return from a slight injury that was sustained when Liverpool played Tottenham at Wembley, with the 25-year old getting through 68 minutes during the 0-0 draw against the Three Lions.

Coutinho's future was one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer and Henry, who often leaves the day-to-day running of the club to others, stepped in and personally made clear that Coutinho would not be sold during August. 

Liverpool supporters had some interesting theories as to why their owner was attending the fixture last night. 

RedMen TV tweeted: "John Henry at Wembley tonight to watch England V Brazil. Or to make sure Coutinho doesn't jump on a plane back with any of his national team mates!" 

Many other Liverpool fans thought he would be meeting Barcelona officials to finalise the sale of Coutinho. Henry heads up the Fenway Sports Group who own Liverpool and they have been criticised for failing to turn up to games at Anfield on a regular basis. 

On the pitch, Liverpool currently sit 5th in the Premier League ahead of a home game against Southampton on Saturday. The Reds then face a key Champions League away trip to Seville before another home game against Chelsea. 

The Coutinho saga looks set to rumble on when the transfer window reopens in January.
