Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has revealed that he “feels at home” with the club and has insisted that the best is yet to come from him.
The 24-year-old arrived at Anfield from Inter in 2013, and has gone on to establish himself as a key part of Liverpool’s success in the time since.
While the Brazilian ace scored 12 goals in all competitions last season in 43 appearances, he leads the scoring charts with four goals so far this year and is undoubtedly a major part of Jurgen Klopp’s plans moving forward.
In turn, it will be a delight for Liverpool fans to hear him commit his future to the club as they look to build on their impressive start to the Premier League campaign which sees them currently sat in fifth place and just five points adrift of leaders Manchester City.
“Maybe this is the best I’ve played but I still think I can improve,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “This is just the start. I always want to improve and do better. I want to be an important player for this team. I want to help my team-mates to achieve great things.”
“Liverpool feels like my home,” he added. “I feel happy, settled and comfortable here with the city and the people. The supporters are very nice. Hearing people singing my name, it inspires me. The fans here make me feel amazing.
“They give all the players confidence. They are there for us in every game.”
From an attacking aspect, Coutinho has played a pivotal role in the fact that Liverpool are the second-highest scorers in the Premier League so far with 16 goals in their opening six games.
The Merseyside giants will hope to maintain that level of potency in front of goal for the rest of the year, and Coutinho’s creativity and eye for goal in the final third will be an integral part in making that happen.
However, if Klopp’s men wish to launch a sustained bid for the title, or a top-four finish at the very least, then they will have to improve defensively. The German tactician will demand that of the entire team including Coutinho having conceded nine goals thus far, more than any other side in the top 10 aside from Chelsea.
