True is that Philippe Coutinho did not finish of cuajar during his first season and average in the FC Barcelona -although during the first months surrendered to a big level-, but out of the Camp Nou all trust he. Kovac Has him like titling indisputable since it landed in the Bayern Munich, and Tite also conceives him like a fixed in his announcements with the 'canarinha'.

No in vain it exists a curious data on Coutinho, and is that it treats of the player to the one who more times has called Tite since it is seleccionador of the absolute of Brazil. At all less than 16 announcements, one more than his compatriot Casemiro. Some could think that Neymar Jr, the big star of the combined, would have to be by pure logic the most requested footballer by Tite.

In normal conditions surely would have been like this, but 'Ney' has suffered in the last two years a rosary of injuries that have prevented him no only triumph with Paris Saint-Germain, but also attend with regularity to the call of the 'seleçao'.

In this sense, Coutinho has the honour to be the most requested Brazilian by Tite to date, and is not for less. It is an indisputable headline for the seleccionador, further that it treat of an irregular player regarding performance. His technical brilliance is a virtue that Tite has known to explode in Brazil, surrounding him of players talentosos and also hard-working, as they could be Casemiro and Arthur.

Coutinho Did not fit in the alignment of the Barça

In Brazil, Coutinho has alternated the position of mediapunta with the one of extreme, playing some time of interior. Precisely the FC Barcelona tried to adapt him to the left extreme when playing with a training 4-3-3 of usual form, but the Brazilian did not adapt . More by the pressure mediática and by the criticisms of the fans, that went turning into an impossible ball to digest.

It had to emigrate this past summer to the Bayern Munich in search of titularities, and for the moment is them achieving. They will serve him to return some day to the FC Barcelona? To day of today seems complicated, and neither the footballer neither the Barcelona club have intention to go back to joint his ways. If the Bayern Munich accesses to pay the option of purchase of 120 million euros, the Barça will give off of the one who does only some months was the most expensive signing of his history.
