Kia Joorabchian claims that his client in Philippe Coutinho will continue to don the famous red shirt at least until they win some silverware amidst reports stating that Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are eyeing the Brazil star.
The Brazilian has been the source of wizardry at Anfield following his move from Inter in 2013 and could rightly be deemed to be one of the very few decent signings Brendan Rodgers had made during his stint as the Kop’s manager.
While speaking to English tabloid Mail, Coutinho’s representative stated that his decision to sign a contract extension at the end of last campaign stressed upon his intentions and gave the Liverpool faithfuls a reason to smile by putting an accent on his delight to perform in front of them.
The Iranian businessman also rubbished the reports of him talking to Real Madrid and made it clear that the 23-year-old attacking midfielder would help the Merseyside outfit qualify for the Champions League while also vying for English trophies.
a Philippe Coutinho is extremely happy at Liverpool. He signed a new long-term contract towards the end of last season that represents his ambition and his feeling for Liverpool.
“Reports that I have been talking to Real Madrid about Philippe are not true. His aspirations are to qualify for the Champions League with Liverpool this season and to win a trophy. That is all that he is focused on a and nothing else.a
Liverpool seem to be moving forward after a nightmarish few decades with the appointment of highly-rated manager Jurgen Klopp, but holding on to their best player, Philippe Coutinho, for long, could turn out be some task despite the comments from his agent.
