But while his arms are covered in artwork, there is one piece on his stomach that is particularly striking.

Coutinho has a tattoo of Mickey Mouse and has explained the reason he got it - with wife Aine getting herself one of Minnie.

The couple have two children together, daughter Maria and son Philippe Junior.

And the former Liverpool playmaker has explained the decision behind getting the images inked.

Coutinho said: "I have various tattoos.

"A phrase that in Spanish means 'never stop dreaming', various ones dedicated to my daughter, one with the name of my wife, as well as my parents' names.

"I did it (the Mickey Mouse tattoo) with my wife for our daughter. She got Minnie and I got Mickey."

Speaking to Barcelona's YouTube channel, he also spoke of his admiration for Samba legend and Barca great Ronaldinho.

Coutinho added: "All the Brazilians had a great story at Barcelona but Ronaldinho was always my idol.

"(I hope) everything to go well. I will work hard to live up to the expectations on me in training and on the pitch."
