Today, Rafael Benitez has introduced Philippe Coutinho Correia to the press at Inter training centre in Appiano Gentile.

Coutinho, what do you feel wearing this shirt?
"I am very happy to be here, I hope to lots of titles and give a lot of satisfaction to all the Inter fans," he replied.

Can you tell us your first days at Inter?
"When I knew Inter were interested I was very excited. It's every Brazilian player's dream to play for a big European team. When the deal went through, I couldn't wait to start. Having the chance to play with Brazilian players like Julio Cesar, Maicon and Lucio is a dream come true. I used to see them on TV and now I will be training with them. Now I want to learn Italian quickly and settle down as quickly as possible. I'm a new face in Italian football so I have to show what I can do

What is your role? Some say that you are similar to Wesley Sneijder.

"My position? I'm a midfielder. I like to play behind the strikers and attack, so yes, I'm a bit like Sneijder. My role models? Robinho and Kaka. The comparisons with Pato? It's flattering, but we're two different players. He's a striker, I'm more a midfielder."

Milan is famous for clubbing. Many Brazilian players enjoy the night life. What about you?
"I don't like going out that much. I'd rather stay at home with my family, my friends and my girlfriend, who I love very much".

Have you chosen your no.??

"No, not yet. I have to think about it".

You could be one of the pillars for Brazil 2014. What do you think?

"The national team? It's still a long way off. First I have to do well for Inter and play well in Serie A. But it is my dream to be called up to my national team."
