Philippe Coutinho says he has no “preferences” in terms of what titles he wins in his career – just that he wins “as many as I can”.

Coutinho left Liverpool to join Barcelona in January in search of silverware, having failed to win a single trophy in five years on Merseyside.

The Brazilian played in two finals for Liverpool, scoring in the League Cup defeat to Manchester City in 2016, and assisting Daniel Sturridge’s goal in a 3-1 defeat to Sevilla later that same year.

But he is on course to start his trophy collection with a La Liga title, and Barca are also in the Copa del Rey semi-finals and last-16 of the Champions League.

“Everyone knows that I wanted to come to Barcelona,” Coutinho told 8tv’s ‘Fora de Joc’.

“It wasn’t possible in the summer, but we worked so that it could be done in winter.

“I really want to win big titles, it was one of the reasons that made me sign for the club.

“I want to win as many as I can, I don’t have preferences.”
