Cape Town - Liverpool play-maker Philippe Coutinho says he would like to achieve greatness in England by leading the Reds to the Premier League title.
After penning a new five-year deal with the club earlier this year amidst speculation of a move to Barcelona, the 24-year-old admitted getting the Reds back in the Champions League is paramount to his ambition.
"Liverpool is a fantastic club. I was received really well by everybody when I first arrived here. It's got fantastic staff and fans and it has a huge level of ambition which is really exciting to see," the Brazil international told the Liverpool Echo.
"I really think we're returning to a period where we can achieve greatness and win titles. That's the reason why I was attracted to stay here at Liverpool.
"Getting into the Champions League is very important for the club and obviously it's our aim. All the games are like finals now if we are going to achieve it. There are still a lot of points available to us and we need to win as many as we can."
Coutinho made a sublime start to the current domestic campaign, but after sustaining an ankle ligament injury in November, he spent two months on the sidelines.
Upon his return in January his performance level noticeably dropped, but after impressing on international duty and once again during last week's 3-1 win over Everton in the Merseyside derby, Coutinho appears to be back to his best.
"My foot is definitely better. It's fully cured now. There is no more problem with it," he added.
"It's just that when you are playing very well and then you are out for a bit, after your return it's not quite the same.
"It's naturally going to take a bit of time to return to your best levels. You have to work very hard and hope that with that work you'll improve and get back to playing how you were.
"I'm physically better and I'm feeling more confident. The team is playing well again and we have to keep working to try and get better."
