Liverpool dazzler Coutinho: The day Materazzi threatened to break my legs!

Liverpool dazzler Philippe Coutinho has revealed how former Inter Milan defender Marco Materazzi threatened to break his legs.

He marked his first training session at Inter by nutmegging Marco Materazzi and leaving the giant former Everton defender flat on his back.

"When I got back into the dressing room, the masseur said he would buy me snacks for the rest of the week if I did it again," he recalled to the Daily Mail.

"Materazzi told me he would put me in hospital. He wasn't impressed."
