Coutinho hopes for quick Liverpool return
Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has confirmed that his shoulder surgery was successful and he hopes to return to action very soon.
Coutinho was injured earlier this month during his side’s 2-2 draw with Swansea City and needed an operation to fix the injury.
The Brazilian had started the season in superb form and Liverpool looked in need of his creativity at the weekend as they went 1-0 at home to Southampton in the Premier League.
But Coutinho has stated he is doing everything he can to be back playing as soon as possible after initial assessments suggested he would be back by the end of October, reports Sky Sports.
"It's annoying to get injured, especially when you are playing well, but that happens," Globo Esporte quotes Coutinho as saying.
"I now want to focus on my recovery and do everything right to be back as soon as possible to help Liverpool in the league.
"The surgery was a success and this is what matters the most. I'll be back soon."
