Philippe Coutinho has told Brazil teammate Neymar that he is not interested in a possible move to Barcelona in the near future.
Just a week ago, the Brazilian captain, Neymar in an interview revealed he would like to see Coutinho at Barcelona, and those words were taken with anger and fear by Liverpool supporters.
But prior to the 1-1 draw with Everton in the Merseyside derby, the Liverpool maestro replied with a message which will relax every Liverpool supporter around the world.
“I am totally focussed on Liverpool. I heard what Neymar said but I want to do well with Liverpool. I am happy here and I hope this season will go well for us.
“Of course it is a nice thing that he said. Everyone knows he’s my friend but I am here and focused on Liverpool to help them do good things on the pitch,” said the 23-year-old midfielder.
