Liverpool Coutinho

Ex-Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has backed the ability of Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho.

The legendary Spanish believes the Brazilian playmaker is one of a very few amount of players who could fit in and actually improve Luis Enrique’s Barca outfit.

“There are not many players that can improve Barcelona, but if you are asking me if he is one of them, on this form, I think he is,” Xavi told Goal.

“Technically he is very good. He would suit Barcelona’s philosophy well,” he added.
