The number that Philippe Coutinho will wear this season is still a mystery ... and it seems that it will be resolved at the last minute
The FC Barcelona already has begun the season 2021-2022 and are many the doubts that have cleared regarding the dorsal of the players in this course, but the of Philippe Coutinho continues being a true mystery. Now, with the official return of the Brazilian to the announcements of the Barcelona, the doubt is greater and everything seems to indicate to that the dilemma is very big.
It fits to remember that 'Cou' has dressed in the Barça the number 14, but in this season Rey Manaj him it 'snatched' and left to the Brazilian without dorsal. In the official web of the Barcelona, in fact, appears without number and the vacancies are few, with the '10' of Leo Messi like main novelty for the Barça.
In the list of summoned that Koeman presented this Saturday, in the previous of the party in front of the Getafe by the third day of LaLiga Santander 2021-2022, there was a curiosity that has not happened unobserved for anybody. Unlike the two first announcements, in this the players did not have his dorsal before the name. A 'signal' that they still have not decided which number will dress the Brazilian of 29 years.
In press conference, Koeman avoided 'wet' in this regard and stood out that "I do not know it and does not interest me. They are things of the club". However, the Dutch has Coutinho and the party in front of the Getafe would be the moment of the truth for the Barcelona. Rey Manaj, although it appears in the page with the '14', could finish giving him back the number to the carioca because it still has not debuted in League.
Options for Coutinho
It is necessary to highlight that the Barça has a staff with too many players and that still expect that they have gone out in this market of signings, that finalises the Tuesday 31 August. For the moment, as we mentioned before, it is the '10' available, but the history could change if Miralem Pjanic finishes abandoning the club (as they want the Barcelona) and leaves available the number '8'.
Another of the novelties, regarding the dorsal, is that Mingueza (that it already has been inscribed in the staff of the first team) appears without dorsal in the web page of the FC Barcelona, by behind the canteranos Gavi (30), Balde (31) and Arnau Tenas (36), by what boasts that this course will start it with dorsal of the filial until it define the staff next Tuesday.
