Coutinho News Is Timely Boost For Reds

25 Jan

Liverpool have been struggling for form since the start of the year, but the news that Philippe Coutinho has signed a new long-term contract is encouraging news ahead of tonight’s Capital One Cup semi-final second-leg against Southampton at Anfield.

Coutinho has developed into arguably Liverpool’s most important player and it is good to see the club move swiftly to reward one of their top performers with a new improved contract.

Liverpool supporters have not had much to cheer about this year with only a 1-0 win over Plymouth in the FA Cup to celebrate, but although their form has dipped recently, they still have much to play for and Coutinho’s news could be the perfect boost to help them overturn Southampton’s 1-0 first-leg advantage in tonight’s semi-final.

Jurgen Klopp is building something at Liverpool, and although Liverpool supporters are impatient for success, it is vital that they keep their key players happy and the news about Coutinho signing a new contract is a big statement by the club.

Coutinho’s new contract is believed to be a 5-yeat contract and worth around £150,000 a week, making him the highest paid player at Anfield.

The Brazilian playmaker has been attracting interest from abroad, with the likes of Barcelona mentioned, but Liverpool believe that Coutinho’s new deal has been signed by a player that will be at the club for the long haul.
