Matt Le Tissier's 'feeder club' dig as Coutinho leaves Liverpool for Barca

From Adam Lallana to Dejan Lovren, Liverpool have made quite a habit of signing Southampton's best players in recent years -- the most recent example the £75 million acquisition of Virgil van Dijk.

However, the shoe was on the other foot for once over the weekend when Barcelona signed Philippe Coutinho.

After seeing the £142million deal go through on Sunday, one former Saint couldn't resist having a cheeky dig.

As well as the Coutinho sale, Liverpool also sold star striker Luis Suarez to Barca back in the summer of 2014.

Those two transfers alone probably aren't enough to constitute "feeder club" status, but we're sure the £207m the Reds received in combined transfer fees will probably go some way to easing the pain of separation anyway.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
