Lucas Leiva hopes to help Philippe Coutinho

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva reveals that he wants to help new signing Philippe Coutinho settle in at Anfield.

Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has revealed that he wants to help new signing Philippe Coutinho settle in at the club.

The 20-year-old Brazilian moved to Anfield from Inter Milan last week for a fee believed to be around £8.5m.

"He's a great talent - a young player but with a lot of experience - and I'm really looking forward to playing with him and helping him to settle quickly in England," Leiva told the club's official website.

"He doesn't speak much English, so I will try to be his dad for a few months and hopefully he will be okay.

"I've been here for a long time and it's just what I feel I need to do and what I feel I have to do. Hopefully he will feel comfortable."

Liverpool resume their Premier League duties on Monday when they host West Bromwich Albion.
