Philippe Coutinho Proves He’s a Magician by Reading Lucas Leiva’s Mind

Philippe Coutinho Proves He’s a Magician by Reading Lucas Leiva’s Mind

See – Philippe Coutinho really is a magician!

The Liverpool winger is commonly referred to as a wizard, genius or even a sorcerer because of his quality on the pitch.

But his magical powers don’t just extend to what he can do with a football – he can read minds too.

Coutinho proved that recently when mind wizard David Alnwick visited Melwood to put him and Brazilian pal Lucas Leiva to the test.

The challenge was simple – Lucas would stand well away and draw whatever came into his head. Then it was up to Coutinho, under Alnwick’s guidance, to look into his team-mate’s eyes and draw the feeling he gets.

Unsurprisingly, the Liverpool playmaker nailed it – revealing a picture of a house just as Lucas had drawn:

Coutinho is currently on international duty with Brazil, but his magic was limited to a substitutes appearance.

Dunga introduced the attacker in the 67th-minute of his side’s clash with Uruguay last week, however he was unable to inspire them to a win and the game ended 2-2.

He’ll be hoping to get involved more when Brazil take on Paraguay in another World Cup qualifier on Wednesday.
