Coutinho proud to wear Liverpool No10 shirt

Liverpool ace Philippe Coutinho is thrilled to be wearing the No10 shirt.

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."
