Liverpool legend Carragher 'thinks the world' of Coutinho
Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has revealed that club legend Jamie Carragher "thinks the world" of starlet Philippe Coutinho.
Carragher played alongside the Brazilian midfielder during the final five months of his Liverpool career last season.
And after the Reds kicked off the new Premier League season with a 1-0 win over Stoke City, Murphy revealed how Carragher spoke highly about Coutinho's talents in a recent conversation.
He told talkSPORT: "I spoke to Jamie a couple of weeks ago and I know he thinks the world of Coutinho, in terms of his potential.
"Coutinho's end-product was what impressed me [against Stoke]. He got in the right positions, his passes were correct, he made the right choices and he threatened the goal.
"He could actually have scored a couple himself. He put one just past the post."
Liverpool took the lead in the 37th minute of their season-opener at Anfield after Daniel Sturridge took matters into his own hands to drill a low shot past Asmir Begovic.
