Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho insists he is happy at the club despite Barcelona’s Neymar admitting he would be perfect for the La Liga club.
Coutinho is quoted as saying in the Sunday Express: “I am totally focussed on Liverpool. I heard what Neymar said but I want to do well with Liverpool. I am happy here and I hope this season will go well for us.
“Of course it is a nice thing that he said. Everyone knows he’s my friend but I am here and focused on Liverpool to help them do good things on the pitch, starting with beating Everton.”
Coutinho’s Brazilian team-mate Neymar had said last month: “I think there are many players with great qualities that could be playing for Barcelona.
“One of them is [Philippe] Coutinho. He is a great player and his style suits Barcelona.”
