John Aldridge: 'Liverpool's Coutinho can become a great'Aldridge is impressed with this man
Liverpool legend John Aldridge has claimed Philippe Coutinho can become a great after his 'world class goal' at the weekend.
Coutinho's stunning strike against Southampton helped Liverpool pick up a 2-0 victory and Aldridge predicted great things for the young Brazilian.
"I'm absolutely over the moon with the win and the goal from Philippe Coutinho was 'a worldie'," Aldridge told the Liverpool ECHO, "He can go on to become a Brazilian great, we know he's got the ability and I'm delighted for him."
Aldridge's words contrast from those of Ronnie Whelan who is also a former Liverpool player. Whelan said he was 'not yet convinced' about Coutinho.
