Stunning Compilation Of Philippe Coutinho At Liverpool Shows Aston Villa Have Signed A Genuine Baller
A stunning compilation of Philippe Coutinho balling in the Premier League shows Aston Villa have got a serious talent on their hands.
Coutinho hasn’t been able to replicate his Liverpool form at Barcelona, largely failing to impress following his mega move in January 2018.
But, on his day, he’s a world class baller who can dribble, pass and score. He does the lot. A genuine play-maker that has the ability to change a course of the game in a single moment.
A mesmerising highlights package of the Brazilian midfielder tearing it up in England brilliantly echoes that sentiment.
Twitter user @PassLikeThiago has shared an epic video of some of Coutinho’s best bits at Liverpool and it makes for incredible viewing.
The clip doesn’t show any of the 29-year-old’s goals, but showcases his unreal ball control, remarkable dribbling and silky skills.

Needless to say, fans online loved Coutinho’s highlights.
One tweeted: “Closest someone got to Ronaldinho ever.”
A second wrote: “What a player! Its few players that can weave their way way in the middle with such ease and vision.”
A third added: “Liverpool Coutinho is unplayable.”
Coutinho reportedly held talks with clubs in England and across Europe, before agreeing to join Steven Gerrard’s Villa.
He’s joined on an initial six-month loan deal subject to a medical and receiving a work permit.
Coutinho and Gerrard enjoyed a spell as teammates at Liverpool, with the Villa boss hopeful of getting the best out of his new star man.
Speaking about his first signing as Villa boss, Gerrard said: “I don’t think you get a nickname as a magician if you’re not a special footballer.”
