Philippe Coutinho signs new Liverpool deal


Liverpool have previous when it comes to letting their best players leave.

The Reds failed to hold onto Luis Suarez and Raheem Sterling as soon as they came into demand, so you can see why fans were getting a little edgy over Philippe Coutinho’s future.

However, all is resolved, as just days after starting negotiations with the club, the Brazilian has put pen to paper on a new deal, announced via the club’s official website.

The playmaker has already scored six goals and created seven assists this season.

Reflecting on his new contract, Coutinho said:

“I would like to thank everybody at the club, first of all.

“I am very happy to sign a new contract here. It is a club that I am very grateful to and this shows my happiness here. I will work much harder to repay the belief shown in me.

“I signed this new contract to stay here for a few more years because it’s a great honour for me. It gives me great happiness because I was welcomed here with open arms by everyone at the club and the supporters right from my first day.


“I am very thankful to this football club for everything.”

Liverpool have made a huge statement by tying Coutinho down, and the news will come as something of a disappointment to his suitors, particularly Barcelona, who were thought to be hoping he would link up with Suarez at the Nou Camp.

Coutinho has committed his future to Anfield for another five years, with his new deal not including a buy-out clause.
