Coutinho: I scored first goal in Liverpool with help of Suarez assist

Coutinho: I scored first goal in Liverpool with help of Suarez assist”

Although he has spent only a few weeks training and playing alongside superstar Lionel Messi, FC Barcelona new boy Philippe Coutinho has insisted the Argentine keeps improving every day.

Coutinho joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in January 2013, for a fee believed to be worth in the region of £8.5 million, and went on to be nothing short of a resounding success on Merseyside, racking up 54 goals and 46 assists in 201 appearances for the Reds.

The Brazilian did not win any trophies during his five years at Liverpool, but he could end up with silverware at the end of this season, with Barcelona top of La Liga and in the semifinals of the Copa del Rey.

"It wasn't possible in the summer, but we worked so that it could be done in winter. I want to win as many as I can, I don't have preferences".

As reported earlier, Coutinho has recently moved to Barcelona from Liverpool, where he had been playing with Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez.

The Anfield outfit are beginning to look like a side finally capable of strongly challenging for the EPL title again with a player of his caliber within their squad, but will they manage to hold on to him for much longer having failed to do so with the Coutinhos et al? "I am enjoying my time together with him and also with Leo [Messi], for me they are idols". I wish him all the best in Barcelona because he is an incredible player, with a lot of quality.
