Philippe Coutinho is eager to get back into the swing of things at Liverpool after enjoying a “very good summer” in Brazil.
The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks with reports claiming that the French side is stepping up their interest in the midfielder.
However, the Brazil international insists he is “happy” to be back at Liverpool and can’t wait to get his teeth into pre-season training.
“I am very happy to be back here and I am ready to start pre-season,” Coutinho said.
“I had a very good summer with my family and friends in Brazil and had enough time to rest and enjoy it. To be honest, it was not that hot there – but still a little bit warmer than here!
“It was nice to come back in and see my team-mates. I’m not training with them yet, but soon I will be back with them and I’m looking forward to that.”
And Coutinho, who scored 13 goals and provided seven assists in the Premier League last campaign, is convinced that the club will win some silverware next term.
“Every day I try to improve and I hope this season I can do even better than last season,” he added. “I am always aiming to improve.
“It was a good season. Of course, we wanted to win something, but we are ready here to start again to do everything to have a better season.
“Everyone has big confidence and this is the key for the players. I am confident, I think everyone is.”
