Although they are many those who have criticised to Philippe Coutinho by his toneless performance this last season 2018-19 in the FC Barcelona, the Brazilian also has defenders. The last that has tried difuminar the criticisms to 'Cou' is Paulinho Bezerra, his mate in the selection of Brazil and that the past season surrendered to good level in the Camp Nou.

Paulinho Won the confidence of Ernesto Valverde and the affection of the fans culé in a season, marking important goals and offering an upper performance to what the people expected initially of him. It arrived pertinent of the Guangzhou Evergrande in August of 2017 and, a year afterwards, decided to leave the Barça to return to the Chinese group, that offered him more money.

It coincided with Coutinho in the staff culé during five months, of January to May of 2018, and in the last hours has gone through the microphones of the program 'Tot Coast' of Catalonia Ràdio. "Coutinho Is a crack, a different player", has ensured on his compatriot, with the will to reduce the criticisms that have poured and are pouring on the '7' of the Barça.

In spite of his return to China, Paulinho recognises that it follows being in contact with some players of the FC Barcelona. "Still I am still in contact with Leo Messi, Busquets, Luis Suárez and Coutinho", has desvelado, ensuring that "play in the Barça was a spectacular experience", although no arrepiente to having returned to China after fulfilling so only a season of Barcelona.

Paulinho Had sufficient with a season in the Barça

"It went back to China because it had to go back. It was a decision one hundred by one hundred safe". Paulinho Contested at all less than 49 parties with the FC Barcelona during the season 2017-18, in which it marked 9 goals. During this 2019 has played 11 meetings of the Superliga of China with the Guangzhou Evergrande, in which it has celebrated 3 targets and even has delivered 2 assistances.

It plays calmer in China, with less pressure and the security that it is one of the big pillars of the team. Each one takes his own decisions and the one of Paulinho Bezerra is respectable, but to a lot of culés safe that would have liked them that it followed dressing the T-shirt of the FC Barcelona, like minimum a season more.
