Coutinho admits the number is special to all Brazilians.
"It's a privilege now to wear the No.10 shirt," Coutinho told the Daily Star Sunday.
"When I came to Liverpool the number was available so that fitted perfectly.
"There's the link to the shirt to Zico and Pele who wore it in the past with such unforgettable style.
"Now the love for No.10 comes from seeing Ronaldinho.
"It is a great honour to be wearing it. I have wanted that number ever since watching Ronaldinho play."
