Philippe Coutinho: I’m very happy at Liverpool

The Brazilian playmaker has stated that he is focussed on improving at the Merseyside club.

Liverpool’s season tailed off at the business end of the campaign, with inconsistent league form and an FA Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa ending the club’s ambitions in 2014-15.

Despite the disappointing nature of the season’s conclusions and ongoing rumours over Raheem Sterling’s future, the Reds have received one piece of excellent news.

Key playmaker Philippe Coutinho has stated that he is aiming to improve at the Merseyside club and has admitted that he is happy with Brendan Rodgers’ men.

“I didn’t have injuries so I was able to play many matches this season. I do consider it as the best I’ve had on a personal level,” he told The Liverpool Echo.

“But I’m still only 22 and there is still a lot of room for improvement. Every season I want to improve and get better.

“I’m very happy here. I want to score and create more goals and do more for Liverpool.”

The attacking midfielder has been a revelation for the Anfield outfit since signing from Inter Milan and will be a key member of a team fighting to make it back into the top four next season.

Coutinho recently signed a new five-year deal at the Merseyside club and as such the Kop will hope that he can develop into one of the best players in world football in his position.

Coutinho will get a further chance to impress this summer, as the Liverpool talisman will feature for Brazil at the Copa America in Chile.
