Sandro compares Coutinho to Ronaldinho
Tottenham midfielder, Sandro, believes that Brazil have another Ronaldinho on their hands with Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.
The 21 year old joined Liverpool last winter and has impressed many in his first year in English football, and fellow Brazilian Sandro feels he has Ronaldinho like qualities.
In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Sandro said: “With the ball, Coutinho’s passes are like Ronaldinho’s. His passes are good. He doesn’t move a lot. But his passing, you think he is going to pass here and he passes there instead.
“He does the same as Ronaldinho. You think he’s going to do one thing, and he does something completely different. He changes. Ronaldinho was the best player, but I think their style is similar. I’m happy for him. He is young but he starts good at Liverpool. It is difficult to do that at Liverpool.”
Coutinho is pushing for a place in Scolari’s Seleção for the World Cup in 2014 and is stating his case with four goals in 23 appearances for his new club.
