Philippe Coutinho’s recently praised Jurgen Klopp, hailing his influence as one of the main reasons Liverpool can realise their “big objectives” this season. Let’s face it, at Liverpool we are so lucky to have someone like Coutinho. An astute signing from Inter Milan has gone on to become a household name. One that is now attracting the likes of Barcelona and PSG. Having seen Suarez be courted by Barcelona then sold to them for a ridiculously low fee, I so hope Coutinho doesn’t go there too. You just don’t know what will happen.
What Coutinho said
“We have to keep working together because the season is very long . We have big objectives to realise this season,” Coutinho told Sky Sports
“The confidence [of a good result] brings good feeling, tells us that we have to keep working hard. This season promises to be very important for us and Liverpool have to keep playing well.”
Having just lost twice this season in the league to Burnley and Bournemouth, Coutinho believes a new-found defensive resolve has been behind the Reds’ fine form.
When asked about Klopp, Coutinho added: “He is a great manager, he has changed the mentality in our team we have become much stronger in defence, and we’ll keep working together.”
So Barcelona, PSG, keep your hands off our star man. He’s ours to keep. We are on a journey and Coutinho with Klopp’s help will get us there.
