Valverde Comments on Coutinho Debut

Valverde Comments on Coutinho Debut

As far as debuts go, that of Philippe Coutinho wasn`t that spectacular.

Given just twenty-two minutes to impress, against Espanyol in the Copa del Rey, the former Liverpool attacking midfielder showed some decent touches but there was never going to be sufficient time or the Brazilian to seriously influence the game.

However, after recovering from injury, it was good to see Coutinho in action.

After the 2-1 win against Espanyol guaranteed Barcelona a place in the semi-finals of the competition, Ernesto Valverde had a few words for the media relating to his new signing, with the boss remarking,

'When he is around the area you can feel the danger.

'His dribbling ability and his eye for passing will help us a lot. It wasn't an easy game but he has got off to a good start.

'Let's see what happens next; this is just the beginning.'

Exactly, give the player the chance to settle into the side and Barcelona will surely reap the rewards.
