Cout to impress Man Utd
Aston Villa star Philippe Coutinho linked up with his new teammates in training for the first time since his loan move was completed.
Coutinho reunited with mansion manager Steven Gerrard, with whom he played at Liverpool, when he moved to Villa Park on his first six-month contract from Barcelona.
The attacking midfielder was pictured in Bodymoor Heath getting through the steps as Gerrard hopes he will be available for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Manchester United.
The Brazil international is excited about the new chapter of his career – and so is his wife Aine.
The 29-year-old wife took on her husband’s new challenge by sharing their pictures on Instagram posing with dancers and blue shirt.
This comes after the Brazilian said he was looking forward to working with Gerrard again.
Coutinho said: “It’s a pleasure to be here, it’s a great club.
“I talked a lot with the manager, with Stevie, and he told me about the club and his ambitions. I’m very happy here and I want to enjoy my football.
“I’ve known Stevie for a long time. I played with him and I learned a lot from him. He is someone I admire greatly.
“I hope to do my best here. For sure, I will work hard, and I hope we can work well together.”
