Liverpool star 'happy' at club

Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho has insisted that he is 'very happy with his life' as he again attempts to play down talk of a move to Barcelona.

The Brazil international reportedly handed in a transfer request at Anfield during the summer in an attempt to force through a switch between the two clubs. Barca fell short with all three of their offers, but they are widely expected to return for the 25-year-old - who has returned to fitness in time to feature against England on Tuesday night - at some stage next year. Coutinho has suggested that he is content with life on Merseyside.

-I'm playing in one of the biggest leagues in the world. I'm always happy. But now it's important to concentrate on the national team. At the moment I am very happy with my life, he told reporters.

The former Inter Milan ace, absent for Liverpool's last three games due to a troublesome injury, has four goals and three assists in nine appearances this season.
