Conti supports her fellow Brazilians in other sports and did the same for Jose Aldo a while back. While Aldo lost his title shot, it wasn’t the same for Coutinho. The former Liverpool star won the Champions League for the first time in his career.

Conti, who was a gifted athlete during her younger days, reacted to a picture shared from another account.

She claimed that this was during their Vasco da Gama days as they were part of a special school for athletes.

Conti was practising Judo at that time while Coutinho was busy with football.

Redemption for the pair

Both stars have had their ups and downs in recent months. Conti was one of the rising stars on NXT but was released by WWE during the coronavirus cuts.

However, the Brazilian bounced back and signed with AEW. She has looked good so far in the new promotion and there is no doubt she will star in the coming years.

Coutinho, for his part, struggled ever since he left Liverpool to join Barcelona. Although he won titles with the Spanish side, he was unable to cement a place and joined Munich on loan.

He faced his parent side in the quarter-finals of the competition but came on only as a substitute.

Nevertheless, Coutinho scored a couple of goals and assisted one as Bayern demolished Barca 8-2.

Coutinho didn’t celebrate any of the goals he scored or set up as respect for his parent club, but he must have enjoyed winning the Champions League with the Germans on Sunday.
