Coutinho well aware of Liverpool's European history

Philippe Coutinho admits Liverpool's European history is a huge motivation for him.

The Brazil midfielder joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in January.

"Every time you come into training every day you see the European Cup and that gives you all the motivation you need," said Coutinho.

"Liverpool has huge players who are idols to many people. I'm young and learning and when you want to decide to sign for a club like Liverpool, these are factors you consider. Liverpool is still a huge club all over the world. Hopefully I will have a long career here."
