Coutinho: "Ready to prove my worth here"


"The interest makes me happy since it means people like the work I'm doing, but Inter have confidence in me"

MILAN – Together, in the heart of Milan, to celebrate the launch of this year’s collection of Panini stickers. The Nerazzurri guests for the evening were managing director Marco Fassone and Philippe Coutinho.

And it was the latter who spoke to Sky Sport Italia on various subjects, ranging from his condition to the team’s objectives. "I’m fine and happy to be here. I have a slight bit of discomfort and I’ll have to undergo another exam in a week to see where I’m at, but I feel pretty good overall."

It was inevitable that the discussion would turn to transfer market rumours, demonstrating that Coutinho is in high demand: "The offer from Liverpool? I’m happy for all these requests because it means that people like the work I’m doing, but I believe Inter have faith in me and I want to show what I’m worth here. We young players – myself, Juan Jesus, Benassi, Bessa and others – can sense the confidence that the coach and club have in us. All my thoughts are on recovering soon and coming back."

Coutinho was then asked about Wesley Sneijder: "He’s a great champion and a very good person. Now he’s playing for another team and I wish him the best. However, we can still win without him."

Finally, a few words on Inter’s objectives: "Third place? We believe in it and we’re working to make it happen. Next we have a very important match in the Coppa Italia and we need to find the right balance to win."
