Neymar Jnr : Coutinho can become Premier League’s best player
Barcelona and Brazilian star Neymar Jnr is convinced that Philippe Coutinho can become the best player in the Premier League and step up as Liverpool’s new Luis Suarez.
The Barcelona forward, who has known the Liverpool playmaker since they were kids, backs his compatriot to fill the creative void left by Luis Suarez at Anfield.
The 22-year-old playmaker struck the winning goal for the Reds in their FA Cup tie against Bolton, curling a long-range shot into the top corner, and is becoming increasingly influential – even likened to Uruguay ace Suarez by Brendan Rodgers.
Neymar believes that the Merseysiders have missed a spark of creativity since Suarez joined him at Camp Nou but is confident that Coutinho can take over that mantle.
