Phillipe Coutinho has named Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar, as the best players in the world.
The Liverpool playmaker, who has been linked with a move to the Camp Nou, once played with Suarez during his time at Anfield and is an international team-mate of Neymar.
“My top three players in the world are the MSN trio,” he told Four Four Two.
“One is fast, the other is skilful and then there’s the top scorer, so they really complete each other.
“Obviously there are others at Real Madrid too, like Cristiano Ronaldo, but those three complete each other.”
Coutinho is currently out for at least five weeks with ankle ligament damage.
He was taken off midway into last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Sunderland underwent a scan on Monday.
The Brazilian has scored five goals in 13 league appearances, as the Reds began the season in superb form.
