In a major vote of confidence for Liverpool, midfielder Philippe Coutinho has said that he is happy at the club and intends to help the Reds in winning trophies in the future. The Brazilian was strongly linked with a move to Barcelona recently, and his compatriot Neymar had advised him to move to Nou Camp.
The 23-year-old says that he was pleased to hear Neymar’s comments; however he is happy with the Merseysiders at the moment.
He told World Soccer Magazine (via Liverpool Echo): “It’s flattering. It’s great to hear this from someone who is not just a friend but also one of the best players on the planet.”
“Nobody knows what will happen in the future but, like I said, I’m happy at Liverpool and am really enjoying the moment. I just like to live in the moment. I am not looking ahead. Being here at Liverpool is a dream come true. I am already playing in the best league in the world, and I have a number of years left on my contract, which I only renewed last year.
“I’m very happy, and my focus is on helping Liverpool fight for trophies.”
Coutinho has recently recovered from a hamstring injury and provided a couple of assists in the 6-0 thrashing of Aston Villa.
