Liverpool newcomer Philippe Coutinho has vowed to improve further as a player, following his impressive start to life at Anfield.

The Merseyside club acquired the services of the 20-year-old in the January transfer window from Inter Milan for a £8.5 million transfer fee.

He has already notched up two goals and two assists in five appearances so far, and has caught the attention of many with his sound technique and good dribbling ability.

And although Coutinho has already claimed a regular starting place at Liverpool, the talented schemer unearthed his ambition of further improving on his game.

The Brazilian footballer has said that the chance to play in different countries has been a healthy learning experience for him, and vowed to continue working hard.

He told the club’s official site, “I don’t know anything about football yet – I am still learning but playing in different countries has been important and it has helped.

“I played in Spain and football is played faster there than in Brazil. In Italy, it’s a bit more like here and I think that has helped me, too.”

Liverpool experienced a slow start to the season, but have improved significantly since the turn of the year. Luis Suarez was the lone noticeable performer for the Reds in the preliminary stages. 

However, the situation has changed a bit since the arrival of Daniel Sturridge and Coutinho in January who have both enjoyed good starts to their Anfield careers.

Coutinho, who scored Liverpool’s lone goal in 3-1 defeat to Southampton last week, expressed his delight on being a part of the Merseyside club. He also said that he was determined to help the Reds improve on their league position.

He added, “Today I am very happy here. I hope I can give my best for Liverpool and be happy.”
