Philippe Coutinho is spending time with his daughter during the Liverpool star's spell on the sidelines
Philippe Coutinho’s hamstring injury is a blessing in disguise for the Liverpool midfielder.
As a new father, the Brazil international is getting the chance to spend time with his daughter in her initial weeks and months.
Coutinho hasn’t featured for the Reds since a 1-0 victory over Stoke City in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final at The Britannia.
While the South American playmaker is working hard in the gym to make a swift recovery, Coutinho is also spending some quality time with his new daughter.
Coutinho posted the above photo and wrote on his Instagram page: “Today my little Princess completes her first month 🙏. Thanks GOD. I love you more than anything my love ❤️”
The Brazilian midfielder is Liverpool’s second-highest goal-scorer in the Premier League this season after a return of five goals in 18 games.
