Colin Pascoe: 'Philippe Coutinho can handle pressure'

Liverpool assistant coach Colin Pascoe believes that new signing Philippe Coutinho can handle the pressure of the Premier League.

Liverpool assistant coach Colin Pascoe has insisted that new signing Philippe Coutinho will handle the pressure of the Premier League.

The 20-year-old Brazilian joined the Reds from Inter Milan for £8.5m on Wednesday in what was described as a "long-term deal".

"He has played a lot of games from a young age," said Pascoe. "What we have got there is a young talent who has played a lot for Inter Milan and Espanyol.

"He is a young lad but what we have seen of him he can handle this type of pressure and he will be a good asset for us.

"The young lads who have come through have been absolutely brilliant but he has a lot of experience."

Coutinho has been ruled out Sunday's trip to Manchester City in the league with a hamstring strain.
