Coutinho eager to add more goals to his game

The Brazilian playmaker has enjoyed a superb season for the Reds but remains determined to improve his goalscoring record, having hit just 13 in 92 games for the club

Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho admits he must add more goals to his game as he strives to match Europe’s elite players.

The Brazilian playmaker has been in outstanding form this season but has scored just five times in all competitions as the club have attempted to qualify for the Champions League for the second season in a row.

In total, Coutinho has netted just 13 goals in 92 games since joining the Reds from Inter in January 2013, and the 22-year-old insists he is determined to improve his record in the coming months.

He told Liverpool’s official website: “I think I still have to improve. I have not improved yet. I scored a few goals last month but I need to improve.

“I have this ambition, this objective of improving finishing. In the position I play, I need to score goals to help the team and create plays. Therefore I must improve my goalscoring skills.”
