Philippe Coutinho may be linked with a move to Barcelona but the Liverpool attacker has proved his Scouse credentials by beating his team-mates in a test of local slang.
Barcelona are said to have had two bids for Coutinho rejected by Liverpool after targeting the Brazilian in the wake of Neymar’s world-record move to PSG.
Coutinho joined Liverpool from Inter Milan in 2013 and has established himself as one of the Reds’ best players – and has obviously immersed himself in local life too.
The 25-year-old took on Sadio Mane and Joel Matip in an MBNA challenge to see which of Liverpool’s imports could understand the most Scouse slang.
Given Mane had to ask “is this English as well?”, the Senegal forward was probably never likely to win.
