Philippe Coutinho has been Liverpool’s standout performer this season, recently adding jaw-dropping goals to his repertoire.

There are plenty of videos on YouTube of the young attacking midfielder playing futsal as a youngster in Brazil.

One of him playing in 2005 as a 12 year old has over 1 million views, with Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers admitting he’s a fan of young Philippe Coutinho videos.

Rodgers believes Coutinho’s style of play hasn’t changed, claiming Coutinho brings that much needed ‘gold dust’ to the Liverpool XI.

“What he gives to the team, he offers that gold dust to how we play,said the Liverpool manager to the official Liverpool website. “He’s a wonderful player.

“If you see his videos on YouTube, playing futsal when he was 11 or 12 in Brazil, he’s playing the same game now only as an adult.

“We knew he had ability, it was just about trusting that ability and allowing it to grow.”
