'Messi Gets Better Every Day!'

Although he has spent only a few weeks training and playing alongside superstar Lionel Messi, FC Barcelona new boy Philippe Coutinho has insisted the Argentine keeps improving every day.

Xavi: These Two Stars Will Take Over From Messi & Ronaldo

The Argentine has been in phenomenal form this season, scoring 27 goals in 34 appearances across all competitions so far.

Coutinho, who joined the Camp Nou side in a £142 million (R2.38 billion) deal, has said it is unbelievable to see how Messi is still improving as a player, and hopes that he can learn a lot from playing alongside him.

"It seems incredible, but every day Messi gets better, and as a teammate I can only take advantage of my moments with him," the Brazil international told 8TV.

"I've learned a lot from everyone and I've tried to take advantage of everything they taught me."

The 25-year-old also had some praise for manager Ernesto Valverde.

"Valverde welcomed me in, and he is always seeking to improve the team's game," Coutinho added.

"He talks a lot with players in training and corrects positioning, which is important."

Ronaldo: This Star Will End CR7 & Messi's Ballon d'Or Reign

Coutinho has made four appearances for his new club so far, but is yet to find the back of the net.
