Philippe Coutinho would become a superstar under Jurgen Klopp

Published 40 Comments

Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho is going to be a world-class player. We're all well aware of that.

It's unlikely that anything will stop him proving his credentials at Liverpool in the coming years. He's technically brilliant, has an eye for goal and is a constant threat to the opposition.

The 23-year-old roams around the pitch in pursuit of providing something magical to the ever-expecting Kop.

A 2013 signing from Italian outfit Inter Milan, Coutinho has gone from strength-to-strength under the guidance of Brendan Rodgers in recent years. In the post-Luis Suarez era on Merseyside, the dynamic midfielder has been the Reds' standout player and is now recognised by many as the club's talisman. 

But Coutinho is by no means the finished article. He has so much more to give. The playmaker can do wonderful things on occasions, but he will soon be hoping to prove his credentials on a consistent basis.

Klopp in? 

Consistency, of course, is key for any player looking to become one of the world's best players. That's where Jurgen Klopp enters the frame. 

The former Borussia Dortmund boss has long been linked with the top job at Anfield. With Brendan Rodgers struggling to implement his philosophy at the club - and Klopp without a job - the Bundesliga-winning manager could yet be the man to change the fortunes of the underachieving Premier League giants. 

And the potential arrival of Klopp should excite Coutinho. You only have to look at the success that the enigmatic German has had throughout his managerial stint so far. He's worked with - and developed - some of the world's leading forwards. 

From Marco Reus to Robert Lewandowski, the Dortmund boss has helped exciting players turn into leading stars in the game. The likes of Shinji Kagawa, Jakub Błaszczykowski and Co. have all performed for their ex-boss. 


Klopp's the ideal fit for Liverpool. He's an exciting manager, who will bring with him an exciting system, perfect for the ex-Inter ace. There's no doubt about it, Klopp will not only make Coutinho Liverpool's main man, he will turn him into a superstar. 

The German has the experience and class to help the Brazilian thrive week in, week out on Merseyside. It's a match made in heaven.
