Philippe Coutinho Reveals Why He Pushed Through His Move From Liverpool To Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho says his desire behind moving from Liverpool to Barcelona was purely to win titles.

The Brazilian sealed a £142million switch to the Nou Camp in January after the Catalan giants failed in repeated bids to land him over the summer.

Liverpool owners FSG stood firm in the face of Barca’s interest in the summer, turning down three bids, but accepted a British transfer record fee to see him sign for the La Liga leaders last month.

After Coutinho’s attempts to navigate a move from Liverpool – including submitting a transfer request – failed, he remained at the club and scored 12 goals, including a hat trick against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League.

Despite that, he moved to Barcelona, and departed the club having never won a trophy – something which he wants to put right in his new surroundings.

“It wasn’t possible in the summer, but we worked so that it could be done in winter,” he reportedly told Spanish media.

“I really want to win big titles, it was one of the reasons that made me sign for the club.

“I want to win as many as I can, I don’t have preferences.”
