Zico: Liverpool’s football last season was beautiful
After Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho was called up to the Brazilian national team for the first time in four years, Brazil icon Zico has admitted he is a fan of the Anfield side.
The Reds become the neutrals favourite last season by producing stunning football during their chase for the Premier League title.
Liverpool and Coutinho unfortunately fell short of winning the greatest prize in English football but earned plenty of new fans and Zico is one of them.
When the Brazilian spoke to the official club website, he said:"I truly supported Liverpool last season. The football they were playing was beautiful, a joy to watch.
"I follow English football a lot and the Premier League is my favourite tournament to watch. The teams play great football and have great players.”
Zico will be hoping to see Coutinho and Liverpool shine again this season.
