Coutinho welcomes Barcelona interest

Philippe Coutinho thinks that media reports that linked  him with Barcelona are welcomed but insists he is fully committed to his contract with Liverpool.
The Brazilian star made a wonderful show yesterday in the match against West Ham, scoring two goals.

Barcelona is interested in the 24-year-old, who said that although the interest from the Spaniards is welcomed, he has no intention of leaving Liverpool.

“Barcelona is one of the best teams in the world. So far there is nothing, if something happened they would have contacted my manager. What I have to do is focus on the field, “Coutinho told ESPN.

He said he is happy that a big club is interested in him.

“I’m happy that a big club is interested in me, it’s cool. What I have to do is to continue working, “he added.

“Liverpool is a great club and we have to return to the Champions League,” Countinho insisted.

Yesterday’s win put Liverpool in a very good position to finish fourth in the Premier League.
