I understand what Liverpool means
“No need to wait. I know. I live this every day, I can smell it. I see the ambition of the club, my team-mates, the manager. I am living it, seeing it,” Coutinho told the Daily Mail.
“Wait to sign? No. No. Now is the right time.”
Coutinho will pocket around £8million a year from his new Reds deal, making hm the highest-paid player at the club.

And Coutinho is well aware of what success at Anfield means to the club.
“I understand what Liverpool means. We can say Dalglish, Rush, Hansen, Souness, Suarez, Gerrard. I've been here quite a few years already, it's not like I am new. I understand,” he added.
“To have signed a new contract at this club, my goal is to be thought of one day in the same way as these players.
“They are legends. You define the success of a player by his loyalty or his titles. Or both. In order to be part of this group, I have so much to do.
“I want to win titles. Five years is my new contract… it gives me that opportunity.”
