Philippe Coutinho tells Liverpool fans: ‘I’ll be back soon’
Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho has declared the operation on his shoulder a success and vowed to back in the team soon.
The Brazilian star required surgery after falling awkwardly following a foul by Ashley Williams during the 2-2 draw with Swansea.
But Coutinho says the procedure went well and he is now on his way back to full fitness.
He told Globo Esporte: “It’s annoying to get injured, especially when you are playing well, but that happens.
“I now want to focus on my recovery, and do everything right to be back as soon as possible to help Liverpool in the league.
“The surgery was a success and this is what matters the most. I’ll be back soon.”
He added that he is hoping to recover as soon as possible in the hope of forcing his way in to Brazil’s national team ahead of next summer’s World Cup.
