Philippe Coutinho signed a permanent deal with Liverpool back on January 30 of 2013 and ever since penning his long-term deal with the Premier League side, he has made an instant impact by scoring 2 goals and providing a few assists to his teammates during the first 4 appearances with the team of Brendan Rodgers.

The midfielder seems to have formed a neat partnership with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. The Brazilian player has earned praise from the players and coaches he is working with in Liverpool.

“Coutinho is a quality player, he’s assisted me four or five times since he has been here. It’s fantastic to be playing with a player of his caliber. He’s a quality player and I can’t praise him highly enough for what he has shown. It’s very difficult to do what he has done in such a short space of time.’’

“I want to say thanks to him because he’s made my job very easy and he’s been very unselfish. He’s put me in many times and it’s fantastic to work with him.” Sturridge said.

Steven Gerrard labeled the Brazilian midfielder and described him as being ’’Magical’ and stated that things can only get better for Coutinho.

Coutinho is a young player that was being watched and wanted by many top European clubs but the 21 years old midfielder shut down claims linking him with a move away from Liverpool as he stated that he wants to continue working and improving.

“I want to continue improving and look forward to working harder – and harder on what I need to do to be considered a great player,”

“I think I have improved with my positioning on the pitch because sometimes I play on the wings and other times in the middle. I have improved my knowledge a lot more and have worked harder on my finishing.” Coutinho stated.
