"The winning mentality, the coach has brought this. He emphasises it a lot," Coutinho told the club's website.
"Since he has arrived the work that he implemented is his ideas," Coutinho said.
"We train and practice the game according to the opponent but he always asks for the same thing, hard work with a lot of dedication.
"It's a team that puts a lot of pressure on the opponent and that is what he asks us to do," Coutinho added.
