Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho has had an excellent run of form, which has earned him the praise of Brazil compatriot Neymar.
Neymar, who is childhood friends with Coutinho, believes the former Inter Milan player could one day be the Premier League’s best.
“He can be the star player in England. This season I think everybody in England is seeing how talented he is—and I know he has a lot more to show,” Neymar said.
We have been good friends since we were 16. Not only is he a fantastic player, he is a good guy to have in the dressing room, always positive and making jokes.
The midfielder put in another fantastic performance for the Reds in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Bolton Wanderers on Wednesday, scoring a stunning goal to seal progression to the next round.
