Philippe Coutinho says that seeing the European Cup at Liverpool's training ground gives him motivation.

Philippe Coutinho has said that looking at the European Cup helps motivate him at training.

The trophy, which Liverpool lifted on five occasions, is on display at the side's training facility at Melwood.

The Brazilian told the club's website: "Every time you come into training every day you see the European Cup and that gives you all the motivation you need.

"The football is quite different to what I'm used to because you have to be much quicker here. The pace is much quicker than Italy or Brazil. In Brazil we play quite open but I'm doing my best to adapt as quickly as I can.

"The number I have at Liverpool does not give me any added pressure. The pressure I have is to play well and do my best for the team. I know that I am representing a huge club and I want to enjoy my football."

The 20-year-old has made two appearances for Liverpool since joining the club in January, scoring once.
