Coutinho Admits to Difficult Season at Barcelona
Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho has admitted that his first full season at Barcelona has not gone as he had hoped in an interview with Marca.
The ex-Liverpool schemer joined the Catalans in January 2018, but has been heavily criticised for his performances since moving to Barca.
He admits that he has underperformed amid rumours linking him with moves to Chelsea and Manchester United.
“I have not had a good season. My performances have been a lot worse than I expected they would. The only way to improve and gain confidence is through hard work, and I have been working hard.”
Coutinho is currently preparing for Copa América with Brazil and scored a penalty in their 7-0 rout of Honduras in their final pre-tournament friendly.
