Coutinho still targeting the Scudetto

Inter youngster Philippe Coutinho – who will get married today – still has dreams of winning the Scudetto.

Although the Nerazzurri are nine points adrift of leaders Juventus, the Brazilian midfielder has confidence in his teammates.

“Our target is to win and that includes the Scudetto,” the 20-year-old noted. “We're fighting for it and we'll try and be as consistent as possible.

“Are Juventus unbeatable? They're playing very well, but no one is unbeatable.”

Coutinho returned to San Siro in the summer after a successful six-month loan spell in Spain with Espanyol.

“I began the season well, but then sadly I got injured and that just halted things a bit. I need to work even harder.

“I can't complain about how things have gone this year. I played more football and earned people's trust. I still want to give more however.

“I see my future at Inter, I’m happy, I want to improve and win trophies here.”

Asked about his big day, Coutinho added: “I've known Aine, my fiancée, since we were kids and we've been together five and a half years. Now it's time to get married!"
