He’s got the goals, assists and leadership qualities. Once he reduces his pass completion percentage Coutinho will be the perfect captain.

Give Coutinho the armband permanently. Some skippers lead by example. He’s a footballing magician, one of the best we’ve seen at Anfield the past 30 years in terms of ability.

The captain. The magician. The showman. The source of inspiration.
