Prestigious magazine France Football has named it’s World Under-23 team of the season, and included our wonderful no.10 Coutinho in a midfield three with Paul Pogba and Marco Verratti.
Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Tottenham forward Harry Kane are the only two other Premier League stars included, in a mouthwatering team which features Paulo Dybalo, David Alaba and the impressive Jan Oblak.
Coutinho’s been perhaps our best player this season, consistently adding goals to an already exciting game.
He’s bagged 12 in total, registering six assists as well, but these numbers would be significantly boosted had a hamstring injury not interrupted his campaign.
Let’s hope he stays with us for a very, very long time.
