Four goals in five appearances and an outstanding showing in the Merseyside derby saw Philippe Coutinho today named as the Standard Chartered Player of the Month for April.
The forward clinched the accolade for the second time this season after winning the fans’ vote in a poll on this website.
Coutinho tallied 37 per cent of the total, seeing off competition from Simon Mignolet (31 per cent) and compatriot Roberto Firmino (18 per cent) to claim the prize.
“I am very happy, as always, to win this award,” he told Liverpoolfc.com upon being presented with the trophy at Melwood. “It’s always a source of happiness to win a prize like this because it is recognition of my work. I hope to carry on helping my team with good performances.”
