The Liverpool magician was full of tricks even during his Inter days.

By now, Liverpool fans are more than used to Philippe Coutinho's moments of brilliance.

It would be nice if he could produce them more, such is the Brazilian's talent when he is at his absolute best.

And, since Roberto Firmino's confirmation as a Liverpool player, expectation has risen that both South Americans can link up to produce an almost unthinkable level of flair for the Reds.

But Coutinho's talent is nothing new, of course. The 23-year-old looked just as good with his passing and skills when he first arrived at Anfield as he does now - if not even more promising, in fact.

As the above video shows, meanwhile, Coutinho proved he was destined for big things even at Inter - despite the fact he wasn't given much of a chance by the Serie A side. His above solo goal in training is one that could be matched by very few. And the Liverpool star has gone on to score some even more impressive wonder goals since his move to Merseyside.

He was always ready to produce big things, though. The individual moments of brilliance aside, can he now take his game to the next level?
