Coutinho: Reds belong in Europe

7 April 2013 14:03

Liverpool attacker Philippe Coutinho believes securing European football for next season is of the utmost importance for the Reds.

The Anfield outfit are unlikely to qualify for next season's Champions League but are well in contention for a Europa League berth.

And the Reds' 20-year-old signing from Inter is adamant that Liverpool belong in European competition.

"It's very important for the club and for the players," Coutinho told The Daily Mail.

"Liverpool must play for European trophies all the time. We will do our utmost in the last few games to get maximum points in order for us reach a place in the Europa League."

The Brazilian playmaker also praised Uruguayan team-mate Luis Suarez, who tops the Premier League goalscoring charts, and has lauded their on-field bond.

"Suarez is a fantastic player and it's an honour to play with him," Coutinho said. "Together I hope we achieve great things for Liverpool.

"He's excellent, always on the move during the game, and helps you open the defence more easily."
