Since his January move from Inter Milan, Liverpool fans have got used to watching the silky skills of Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho.

But Coutinho didn't pick up those tricks and flicks on the 11-a-side pitch.

Oh no, it was futsal were he learnt his trade. The small-sided indoor game has honed the skills of Ronaldinho and Neymar, and Coutinho similarly credits futsal for his impeccable touch, timing and passing.

The 20-year-old, an £8.5m capture from Inter Milan, has been superb for the Reds, scoring two goals and laying on five assists. 

And it's no surprise to find out he was equally as brilliant aged 12, as the video below show. Credit to for getting hold of it, check it out here...
