Former Inter midfielder happy at Liverpool
The 21-year-old signed with the English club from the Nerazzurri during last season’s January transfer window and has proved to be an impressive addition to the Reds’ squad so far.
Coutinho spoke to Brazilian newspaper Estadao about his focus on succeeding with Liverpool and insisted that his time at Inter is responsible for him landing such an opportunity.
“I can say that this is the best phase of my career,” said the youngster, as reported by FcInterNews.it.
“I’m fine on the field with my team-mates. I was also fine during my time at Espanyol.
“I’ve played with continuity and have had good performances.
“At Inter, the situation was more complicated.
“However, I still love the club because it opened the door to other European teams, but now I’m solely focused on Liverpool.
“My adaptation to the squad has been much calmer than I originally imagined.
“It’s been important to me to be well received by the whole group. My team-mates help me a lot.”
The young play-maker then commented on what it’s like to be a part of such a big club like Liverpool.
“I have a best-selling shirt here. It’s nice to know that your work is recognised, but I only think about the team,” he continued.
“Liverpool have a great tradition and are a ‘giant’ of Europe. I’m very proud to wear this shirt.
“I don’t like to talk about individual goals. What matters is the performance of the whole squad.
“This year there are so many strong rivals in the Premier League, but our goal is always to win the title.”
