The former Liverpool striker Emile Heskey believes the star of the team Philippe Coutinho will reach the level of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. The Brazilian player broke out with two goals in the success of their 4:3 over Arsenal on Sunday, catching him from free kicks was a virtuoso.
`I think Coutinho has the qualities to reach the level of Messi and Ronaldo. He has as much as their skills and we have seen that in certain moments. Now he needs to be more consistent. His skills are phenomenal.`, said Heskey.
`I`ve seen him while he was still at Inter in some videos on the Internet and I said "wow". He is a phenomenal player. And some of his submissions and gaze on the game. Someone`s going to catch up, but it does the trick and one wonders how it`s done and how he knows that someone is behind his back.`
`And you begin to wonder if he has eyes in the back of the head. He has that one sees and back. Such players appear only once in a lifetime. He is phenomenal. So there are teams interested in him, but he has a tremendous significance for Liverpool. He`s still young, but I think he will reach an even higher level, because it is a question of psychology, not of a talent.`, Heskey added.
