Thiago Silva admits speaking to Coutinho over PSG move

  Thiago Silva admits speaking to Coutinho over PSG move So it turns out Thiago Silva has been a bit of a sly dog. Liverpool won't be happyThe Brazil international has been linked repeatedly with a move to Barcelona, though recent reports have suggested that PSG are also interested in acquiring the former Inter playmaker.

Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has selected his dream five - a - side team from the players he's played with throughout his career. The 25-year-old has a wealth of talent to pick from having ran out for the likes of Inter Milan, Vasco da Gama and Espanyol before moving to Anfield

Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho was asked by Soccer AM to make up his dream five-a-side team from the players he’s played alongside throughout his career.

Here’s who he came up with and his reasoning for picking each player.

JULIO CESAR

“When I arrived at Inter Milan, in this moment, for me, he was the best goalkeeper in the world. He did great things at Inter. He is one of the best goalkeepers I’ve played with. When I arrived at Inter, I was so young and he helped me off the pitch. It was difficult being a long way from my family and friends. He is very quick with his movement and is also good with his feet.”

LUCIO

“When I arrived at Inter he was in his best moment. He won everything at Inter. He was very tough and trained as hard as he played. He’s a really nice guy but when he arrived in the dressing room for the game, he changed, you could not talk to him because he was focused on the game.”

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton: Three Stars

  Liverpool 3-0 Southampton: Three Stars Following Liverpool’s comfortable 3-0 win against Southampton, I will be saying who my three standout performers were for the Reds. Mohamed Salah – Undoubtedly the man of the match. The Egyptian’s brace saw him take the lead in the race for the league’s golden boot. He was outstanding yesterday. His all round game was brilliant. Salah’s relentless pressing and determination to win the ball impressed me massively. His first goal was a moment of genius, something the game looked as if it needed. His second goal was a very intelligent run and then latched onto the ball with his blistering pace and finished it calmly. Salah loves a give and go with his team mates and because of how quick he is, the Southampton players couldn’t get near him. He must be serious trouble to have to mark. He was took off towards the end of the game so couldn’t quite get his first hat-trick for the Reds. There was a standing ovation from the whole of Anfield for a player who has stolen the fan’s hearts. Philippe Coutinho – He looked at his best yesterday. Coutinho came in with an assist and a goal and performed brilliantly in the win. The assist for Salah’s second was the best of Philippe Coutinho. He’s often criticised, mostly by other fans, for not providing enough assists. When he does assist, they always seem to be magic, which just sums the Brazillian up. Coutinho’s goal was well taken too.

STEVEN GERRARD

“This is an easy pick. He is one of the best players I’ve played with and I learned a lot from him. When I arrived at Liverpool, it was a dream to play with him, a guy who I used to watch in Brazil and I used to play with on the PlayStation. Stevie G is the best midfielder I’ve played with. He was an idol for me and for everyone who watched him play, but when you were together with him, and you see him training, it was different, he was even better. He was great at shooting, passing and defending and a big leader.”

NEYMAR

“He’s not a bad player! He is one of the best in the world. I’ve played with him many times with the national team at U15, U16, U17 level. He has always been different. He will win the Ballon d’Or one day, it’s coming, I think. He is the best technical player I’ve played with. He’s very skilful, in training there will be five players around him then he’ll do one movement to get away.”

Klopps reiterates Coutinho's commitment to Liverpool

  Klopps reiterates Coutinho's commitment to Liverpool Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was once again quizzed about Philippe Coutinho and his commitment to Liverpool on Monday. The Reds boss spoke to the media out in Spain ahead of his side’s clash at Sevilla in the Champions League. Inevitably, he was asked about Coutinho’s commitment to the Reds and was forced to discuss his future at the club. When asked whether or not he was worried about reports linking him away from Anfield, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo, Klopp responded defiantly. “No! I’m not worried about it. The only opportunity for us to be successful is to have good players in the team. If you have good players it’s our job to make sure these players want to stay at Liverpool and don’t want to go somewhere else.” “If players still want to go somewhere else it can have different reasons but it’s not my problem in this moment. It’s a long season to go and we have this team together now and we want to be as as successful as possible which is difficult enough to be honest.” Coutinho handed in a formal transfer request in the summer as he aimed to push through a move to Barcelona. The La Liga leaders offered in excess of £100 million but the Reds stood firm in their stance that Coutinho would not be sold. “I’m happy to have these players together and hopefully they can be successful tomorrow. It’s all good. You in Spain are used to a lot of media and different things, Barcelona, Real Madrid, all that stuff.

LUIS SUAREZ

“He is a top player. He’s a killer in front of goal, if he has a chance, he scores. I’ve played with a lot of strikers but I think he’s the best one because he doesn’t miss and he fights a lot. He’s a family guy, he helped me a lot when I arrived at Liverpool and he’s really nice.”
