Coutinho Non-Committal on January Transfer
Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho refused to be drawn on whether he would leave the club in the January window, following his hat trick in the Reds’ 7-0 win over Spartak Moscow in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
The Brazilian was heavily linked with a move to Barcelona during the summer and the player submitted a transfer request in order to push the move through. However, Liverpool held firm.
But with the transfer window opening again in just over 3 weeks, Coutinho again fielded questions about his future, ““I do not know how the future is going to be,” said Coutinho.
“What will happen in January, we will know it in January. I do not know if there will be an offer. I am at Liverpool and I always do my best when I have the opportunity to play, respecting the jersey and the supporters.
“Last summer there was a job offer in the same way that happens with any employee and I was interested in it. Since I stayed, I have played with will and desire.
“It was a special night due to the result and because I had the armband in such an important game playing for a club like Liverpool.”
