Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho says he is happy working alongside Jurgen Klopp, despite links to some of Europe’s top clubs.
There has been much speculation surrounding the 24-year-old’s Liverpool future, with Barcelona and Paris Saint-German both rumoured to be interested in signing the Reds’ player of the year.
Despite this, Coutinho has played down any speculation about his future, admitting that he remains happy with life under Klopp.
“I am grateful for everything Liverpool has done for me,” Coutinho said after Brazil’s 1-0 defeat to Peru in the Copa America on Sunday night in the USA.
“Am I happy there working under Klopp? It’s clear, he’s great.”
Coutinho’s quotes will ease the fears of Liverpool supporters worldwide, to an extent, with the Brazilian one of the club’s most prized assets.
He was named the club’s Player of the Year for the second time in a row last season, scoring 12 goals – some of them vital in the Europa League – and proving to be the Reds’ main talisman.
It’s imperative that the Reds don’t become a selling club, having lost key players such as Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling in consecutive summers, and must start keeping hold of their star men.
Coutinho most certainly falls into that category, and the hope is that he plays a huge part in the team’s future under Klopp.
