LIVERPOOL - Coutinho insists he is fully focused on playing for Reds

LIVERPOOL - Coutinho insists he is fully focused on playing for Reds”

Philippe Coutinho has insisted that he remains fully committed to Liverpool after failing to secure a summer move to Barcelona.

The five-time European Cup winners, however, stood their ground and while the Spanish giants launched multiple bids, they eventually opted against matching a €200m (£176m) valuation they claimed Liverpool had placed on the player.

Coutinho has started the Red's last three matches and scored the equaliser during a 1-1 Champions League draw in Russian Federation against Spartak Moscow on Wednesday night.

"I'm calm. It's all passed by", Coutinho said. "I'm here to defend the colours, to give my maximum" Coutinho said following the stalemate with Spartak Moscow, as reported in the Liverpool Echo. That disappointing result leaves Liverpool third in Group E after two matches behind both Spartak and Sevilla.

Liverpool held their ground when Barcelona came calling for Coutinho this summer and the saga dragged on all the way to deadline day and beyond.

That goal followed his superb free-kick strike in the 3-2 win over Leicester City in the Premier League last Saturday, one of the more recent indicators that he's ready to return to the heights seen last season.
