Philippe Coutinho has been thoroughly enjoying his football for club and country…
There’s been no stopping Liverpool’s Brazilian magician so far this season. Philippe Coutinho has been in wonderful form, particularly since the turn of the year, inspiring our recent turnaround in fortunes.
The three-time Reds Player of the Month has led our surge up the Premier League table in 2015, scoring memorable goals against both Southampton and Manchester City to close the gap on the top four to just two points.
Earlier today, it was revealed that the 22-year-old had kept his place in the Brazilian national team squad, with his recent performances clearly having caught the eye of manager Dunga.
Few have adapted better to Brendan Rodgers’ new-look 3-4-3 formation than our playmaker in chief, who has been single-handedly cutting teams apart so far in the current campaign.
His role behind a central striker – primarily Daniel Sturridge or Raheem Sterling – has seen him given more freedom to consistently produce his moments of brilliance, much to the delight of our supporters.
The player himself has never been happier, as he told our official website: “Every time I see my name on the Brazil list I feel very happy.
“It is always as if it were happening for the first time. Liverpool have been playing very well and it has been a very happy moment for me.
“My objective is to always be playing and starting games – but being part of this squad is in itself a massive satisfaction for me.
“It’s a great honour to wear my country’s national jersey. Brazil have lots of quality players and while it’s difficult to secure a regular place, my goal is to be always fighting for my place on the team.”
