Philippe Coutinho Correia ([fiˈlipi kowˈtʃĩj̃u]; born 12 June 1992), known as Philippe Coutinho, or simply Coutinho, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for English club Liverpool and the Brazil national team as an attacking midfielder or winger. He began his club career at Vasco da Gama in Brazil before moving to Inter Milan in Italy, who loaned him to Spanish side Espanyol in 2012. In January 2013, he was signed by Premier League club Liverpool for £8.5 million. His vision, passing, dribbling and long-range strikes have earned him the nickname Little Magician by Liverpool fans and teammates. Brazilian great Pelé tipped Coutinho for a "great future", after he was named in the 2015 PFA Team of the Year. At the age of 18, Coutinho made his senior international debut for Brazil in 2010. He represented the nation at the 2015 Copa América.
