Philippe Coutinho has signed a new long-term deal at Liverpool.

Philippe Coutinho has pledged his future to Liverpool

Brazilian international Coutinho has put pen to paper on a deal keeping him with Liverpool until 2022, with no release clause written into the contract.

Coutinho recently returned to action for the Red’s after a six-week lay off, after an ankle ligament injury, but still has six goals in 18 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this term.

“I would like to thank everybody at the club, first of all,” Coutinho told the club’s website.

“I am very happy to sign a new contract here. It is a club that I am very grateful to and this shows my happiness here. I will work much harder to repay the belief shown in me.

“I signed this new contract to stay here for a few more years because it’s a great honour for me. It gives me great happiness because I was welcomed here with open arms by everyone at the club and the supporters right from my first day. I am very thankful to this football club for everything.”

He added: “I am the kind of person that works very hard in trying to get better every day. I am always trying to learn, so this will be no different from what it was before my injury.

“Of course, with my injury things got a bit more difficult and I wasn’t playing for quite a while.

“When you come back, of course it is too difficult to be at the same level, but I have been working very hard each day in order to carry on producing good performances on the pitch to help the team achieve victories.

“The last few games were not so good but we are ready to stand up again and carry on fighting.”

Manager Jurgen Klopp said: “We have total belief in our project, but when a player of Phil’s calibre and status commits for this length of time it shows that our faith is shared throughout the game. He knows he can fulfil his dreams and ambitions here at Liverpool. This is a big statement.

 “I look forward to seeing Phil create many more great memories and moments for this club.”
