He hasn’t even kicked a ball for Aston Villa but the fans are already very fond of Philippe Coutinho.

There is enormous excitement about what Coutinho, who joined the Villans on loan until the end of the season, can do at Villa Park.

The Brazilian is yet to make his debut, however, in anticipation of this fans have already come up with a song for him.

Former star Jack Grealish, who made a big-money departure from Villa to Manchester City this summer, may not be too happy with it.

To the tune of Wham’s Wake Me Up Before you Go-Go !, the song reads:

“Wake me up before you go,

“Who needs Grealish when you have Coutinho ?!”

Villa fans will be encouraged by Coutinho’s agent claiming the player suffered a pay cut to join the club. His representative, Kia Joorabchian, has also suggested that the player would like to stay in the Premier League beyond the rest of the season.

“When we decided in January to ask Barcelona that we would like to move, the Premier League was, we weren’t really looking at other leagues,” Joorabchian told talkSPORT.

“It’s a league he feels most comfortable in, he really wanted to come back, he misses it.

“He played in the Bundesliga, he had a great season and won the Champions League, won the championship, he had a great experience in the Bundesliga, he had a good experience in La Liga, won several leagues, cups .

“But ultimately the Premier League, the intensity and the way the game is played here is the way he wants to move forward.”

Joorachian also revealed that Villa boss and former Liverpool team-mate Steven Gerrard played a huge role in Coutinho’s arrival.
