Juninho : Coutinho Is Brazil's Best Player After Neymar

Juninho: Coutinho Is Brazil's Best Player After Neymar

Brazillian Legend Juninho has hailed Liverpool star Philipe Coutinho as Brazil's second  best player behind Neymar after the 24 year old broke his premier League goals record to become the Brazillian with most goals in the English League.

Coutinho broke the 13 year record with his 30th goal for Liverpool in the 2-1 away win at Stoke.

Juninho told the mail : "Coutinho can be considered, after Neymar, the best player in Brazil.

" He's different class and he deserves everything he is achieved because he has worked very hard for it,"

"One of Coutinho's biggest qualities is that ability to find the space.

"People think that type of player will have more difficulties adapting to English football than say Spanish football but in England I found a lot more space than I did in Spain.

" The intensity is there but if you get past the first wave of pressure then the pitch opens up."

Juninho Scored 29 goals for Middlesbrough in the league before leaving for Athletico Madrid in 1997. A move he admitted he wouldn't have made now.

"If l could go back to the past, l would never leave English football
when I did.

"I had the chance to go to Liverpool in 1997,

"The manager Roy Evans spoke to my father but I had already given my word to Atletico Madrid."

Coutinho have been exceptional for Liverpool with his vision, dribbling, long range shots and ability to provide that magic to turn the game around.

With Mane out for the rest of the season, Coutinho alongside Firmino definitely have what it takes to deliver Champions League Football.
