Philippe Coutinho has admitted he is still adapting to the weather in Liverpool.

The Brazilian has been at Anfield since making the switch from Inter Milan in 2013 and has become an integral part of Brendan Rodgers' squad.

The 22-year-old has admitted he finds it hard in the winter on Merseyside but is slowly getting used to the conditions.

He also said he rarely eats anything but Brazilian food as his wife often cooks traditional dishes.

In an interview with Football Focus, Coutinho said: "When I'm at home I still eat Brazilian food. My wife cooks Brazilian dishes, like feijao with rice.

"As for the cold, it's hard. I'm still not totally used to it, and every time it's cold I find it really tough. But it's getting better, and I'm making do as best I can."

The Brazil international has impressed since his move from Serie A and was rewarded for his fine form last season with a place in the PFA Team of the Year.

It is widely accepted that any success the Anfield club have this season will heavily involve the skilful South American.

Having been suspended for the defeat to Manchester United, Coutinho returned to the starting line-up last night and was one of Liverpool's better players in the 1-1 draw with Bordeaux.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has said it is only a matter of time before the attacking midfielder is chased by Real Madrid or Barcelona.

The Spanish giants have a history of plucking the best talent from the Premier League and Coutinho will surely be high on their lists.

Could the 22-year-old's revelation that he struggles with the weather in the north-west be a deciding factor in a future move to either La Liga club?
