Philippe Coutinho was during several months in all the quinielas to abandon the FC Barcelona. The culés did not have the Brazilian and wanted to give off of him by two reasons. The first, to do box in a moment delicate in the economic by the crisis of the coronavirus. The second reason, because the one of Rio de Janeiro wins more than 10 million annual euros and the club needed to lighten mass salarial urgently.

The problem is that any team has wanted to do a decent offer by the mediapunta since it put him in the market. With this panorama, decided that it could finish remaining, an option that finished to consolidate with the arrival of Ronald Koeman. The Dutch trainer left clear from the beginning that had the international 'canarinho' and his intention is to try recover his best version, the one of the Liverpool.

In addition to clearing completely the future of his customer, Joorabchian wanted to stand out the professionalism and the work of the ex of the Inter of Milan or of the Liverpool. The player incorporated to the pre-season culé several days before what touched him to win a place and show that it is more committed that never. "The club had quoted it on 7 September, but Philippe went back at the beginning of month, because it did not want to lose the point of physical form", aimed.

This has caused that it remain his represented and other footballers that perhaps also could have gone in other conditions.
