Coutinho says Liverpool team-mate Suárez is 'out of this world'
Philippe Coutinho has described Liverpool team-mate Luis Suárez's talents as 'out of this world' and says he is delighted to play alongside the Uruguayan.
Coutinho already appears to have struck up an understanding with South American compatriot Luis Suarez - a man whose talents he believes are not of this world.
"Suarez is phenomenal - he is otherworldly," said the No.10. "The goals he scores, the way he gives himself to the team. It is very important and I am very happy to be able to play next to him.
"I think it's the way he gives himself to the team - he fights all the time and chases all the time. He doesn't let one ball go - even if it's the hardest one.
"He fights all the time to win and I admire that in a player. I think it is one of his strong points.
"I'm not only happy to play next to him, but also other players like Steven [Gerrard], who is phenomenal, too. These are guys from another world!"
Despite feeling as though he still has much more to offer, Coutinho could hardly have wished for a better start to Anfield life.
He concluded: "I'm very happy here. I am at a great club, I am wearing a shirt that has a great history and what I have noticed in the last few weeks here is that the whole group is very united, strong and fights for their aims. I hope I can learn more and more with my teammates here."
