Arrival of Brazillian Magician

Written by

Coutinho oh oh oh!!!

Rang around the stade Velodrome with 33.150 packed in to welcome the talented Brazilian to their beloved club.

The place erupted with a deafening noise of ovation for the little Brazilian as he stepped on the field to thank all the fans that came out to welcome him to this prestigious club and promised he'd give his all for the club

We caught up with a talented Brazilian after the celebrations for a quick interview

And this is what he had to say

Layla 

welcome to Marseille Phillipe

How does it feel to hook back up with the gaffa once again

Coutinho

Thank you Layla it is a pleasure to be in such a beautiful city as this and a honour to be playing for such a prestigious club as Marseille

It is a honour as always to be highly regarded by a individual such as the gaffer whatever club he has gone on to manage he has always moved heaven and earth to require my services for his club for this I am truly blessed and honoured and have nothing but love and respect for the gaffa

Layla

Is there any pressure on you arriving at this club with the price tag you did with the most expensive signing of this year at £75m

Coutinho

Of course you noticed stuff like that as it is the first thing people talk about but I try not to focus on it and concentrate on doing my job I have been brought in to do

Actually me and the gaffer were laughing about the crazy transfer fees that were paid for me over the years as some of them where ridiculous hahaha

On a serious note every transfer has moulded me into the player that I am today and I am grateful for that

Layla

You wear witness to the team winning the league title this year where you disappointed that you couldn't take part in the last couple games due to some paperwork

Coutinho

Yes I arrived at the club with four games remaining of the season but couldn't play due to some paperwork holding up the completion of my deal of course I was disappointed not to play any games as any footballer would be

But I was honoured to bear witness to such a great moment as the club picked up their league title for the first time and was cheering them on from the sideline and got the chance to lift the cup up as well in the celebrations was a humbling moment

Layla

One of the moments that people are still talking about is when LacaSandRiage ran over to the sideline after a goal was scored to celebrate in style by having a dance off with yourself

Coutinho

Hahaha that was one of the funniest moments I will never forget in my life as I was on the sideline just celebrating only to look around and see the lads running towards me I was like what is going on then they just broke out into a dance off

Which people are saying sturriage one but I don't know about that hmmm

Layla

How is it fitting into a new team seems like the chemistry between you guys is great

Coutinho

I couldn't of asked for a better bunch of lads to call my teammates I already know a lot of them as we have been in previous clubs together and have stayed in contact with each other over the years due to a strong bond that was influenced by the gaffa's strong ethos of moving as a unit

And can't wait to know more about my other teammates

Layla

Have you set any goals for the upcoming season and do you have any encouraging words for your Beloved fans

Coutinho

The only goal I have for next season is to help my team as much as I can and to give my all for this prestigious club

And to the fans thank you for showing me and my family such a warm reception to this beautiful city and I can't wait to start this new chapter in my life in this prestigious club

Bang bang swoop swoop go Marseille haha

Layla

Coutinho
