Liverpool star and last season’s Liverpool Player of the Year, Philippe Coutinho, who is getting a lot of plaudits for his brilliant displays with Liverpool on a regular basis. Sublime performances from the Brazilian attracted interest from giants like Barcelona and Real Madrid according to rumours.
Even, departed Liverpool star Steven Gerrard, who now plays for LA Galaxy, expressed his concern about the future of the 23-year-old star that he may not stay at the club for a long time while the two Spanish giants may come calling for him.
The news will not be a pleasing one for Liverpool fans as the number 10 said in a recent interview with Football Focus on BBC says he’s still not used to Liverpool weather. He joined the Merseyside club in January 2013 and after spending more than two and half years, his struggling to adjust to the weather may concern the fans.
“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.”
Talking about the food, Liverpool maestro said:
“To be honest when I’m at home I still eat Brazilian food. My wife cooks Brazilian dishes, like Feijao with rice.”
He was also asked on his friend Neymar and how close they are which will be bigger worry for the fans a Neymar is one of Barcelona’s biggest star along with Luis Suarez who also adores the young Brazilian.
“Yeah we’ve known each other for a long time, we played together in the national youth teams.”
“So throughout the Under-14s, Under-15s, Under-16s and Under-17s we became very close.”
“Over time we grew further apart, as I moved to Italy, but we stayed in touch with each other.”
“He’s very down to earth, and everyone really admires him.”
