Philippe Coutinho has left FC Barcelona without having left a good taste in his mouth. Much more was expected of him when he arrived from Liverpool
In the market of traspasos of winter of 2018, the FC Barcelona closed the most expensive signing of his history. It treats of Philippe Coutinho, by which the Catalan club paid 160 million euros to the Liverpool, 120 of fixed part more other 40 based in easy variables to fulfil. It expected of him that went the relief of Andrés Iniesta in the centre of the field.
It has not happened neither a year and half since it announced officially the signing and the expectations have not satisfied at all. The Brazilian began well, but went entirely of more to less until the point to turn into one of the players that the sportive direction considered prioritarios to give exit. Finally, the Bayern of Munich will be his team by means of a cession.
In the Bavarian team will look for to improve his performance, give better feelings and harvest better numbers that those that has offered in the FC Barcelona. As Barcelona, has contested a total of 76 parties -55 of them, like titling- and has annotated 21 goals, seeing until three yellow cardboards in all they.
What himself attained the carioca in the Camp Nou was to expand his list of winners with until four titles two Leagues, a Glass of Rey and a Supercopa of Spain. It is necessary to take into account that, when it arrived to the Barça in January of 2018, Coutinho could not participate in the Champions League for having it played before with the Liverpool.
Curiously, the team missed him in said competition -especially in the party against the Rome in which the culés fell deleted- since his state of form was very good in this moment and Ernesto Valverde considered him a fundamental player in League and Glass. Thus, it expected a lot of him the past season, but his level was tremendously disappointing and finish for exasperating to the fans and to the technical body.
The course of Coutinho was prioritaria
Philippe Coutinho came to the FC Barcelona to be the relief generacional of Andrés Iniesta, but his performance is leaving a lot that wish. The Brazilian has not adapted neither to the place of interior, since it is missing him route, neither to the of extreme, since it lacks explosividad. His high index card beside the fact of not having place in the plans of Ernesto Valverde did that the Barça had absolute priority to give him exit.
