Philippe Coutinho Correia -born 12 June 1992. Is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for Premier League club Liverpool and the Brazil national team as an attacking midfielder or winger.
Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Coutinho showed prodigious talent and excelled in Vasco da Gama’s youth system.
He was signed by Italian side Inter Milan in 2008 for €4m then loaned back to Vasco immediately. Coutinho made his Milan debut 2 years later and was seen as the “future of Inter”, but struggled to establish himself in the first team and was loaned to Spanish club Espanyol in 2012.
In January 2013, he was signed by Liverpool for £8.5 million. He flourished at Anfield; his combination of vision, passing, dribbling and long-range strikes earned him the nickname Little Magician from Liverpool fans and teammates. After he was named in the 2015 PFA Team of the Year, Brazilian legend Pelé tipped Coutinho for a “great future”.
Coutinho made his senior debut for Brazil in 2010 at the age of 17. He has since made over 20 appearances and represented the nation at the 2015 Copa América and the Copa América Centenario.
