Coutinho urges Liverpool focus
Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho has urged his Liverpool teammates to focus on the targets ahead, as we move into the second half of the season. The Reds are in contention for a domestic treble still, but the Brazilian knows the squad will need full focus to achieve their goals.
Coutinho has just returned from an ankle injury and told Sky Sports, “We have to keep working together because the season is very long. We have big objectives to realise this season," Coutinho told Sky Sports.
"The confidence [of a good result] brings good feeling, tells us that we have to keep working hard. This season promises to be very important for us and Liverpool have to keep playing well." Coutinho also had words of praise for manager Jurgen Klopp.
“He is a great manager," Coutinho added. “He has changed the mentality in our team, we have become much stronger in defence, and we'll keep working together."
