If anyone in our team is deserving of such high praise, it is Philippe Coutinho.
The Brazilian is a phenomenon and even Emre Can spoke about the Brazilian as though he was a fan just like the rest of us.
It is hard not to be amazed by what our number 10 does with the ball at times and the way he looks to be five steps ahead of every other player on the pitch.
Speaking to Sky Sports about his teammate, Can said: “For me he is incredible what he does on the pitch. It is amazing and if you see on the training pitch and in the training sessions, he is not just a good footballer, he is a fighter, he wants to work for the team.”
“It’s a big honour to play with him. He is a very, very good player and I have not seen a player like him in my career so far.”
“In every training session I am thinking: ‘Wow!'”
We are all thinking the same thing.
If Coutinho continues to dominate games in the way he has so far this season, how much longer will we be able to keep him from the clutches of Barcelona or Real Madrid?
He has shown signs of seriously taking things to the next level this season in terms of maturing and taking responsibility by controlling the game himself.
Talented players around him at Liverpool are in awe of his excellence, which emphasises what a special player he is.
If we are to win anything or be successful in anything we do this season, Philippe Coutinho is going to be at the heart of the effort.
