Liverpool midfielder Coutinho reveals secret to Suarez understanding

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho has revealed why he has been able to strike an immediate understanding with Luis Suarez.

The pair are able to communicate in Spanish, thanks to Coutinho's spell on-loan with Espanyol.

"We always communicate in Spanish on the pitch - I spent six months on loan in Spain so I can get by quite well.

"Suarez is a fantastic player and it's an honour to play with him. 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."
