After returning to Barcelona, Coutinho regained his confidence. Under Koeman, he is an important member of the team.
This summer warm-up match, as well as the first two games of the league, Coutinho's performance is impressive. In the last game, he provided an assist for Fati, and this time he connected with Fati to help the latter score the first goal. Before Messi made an own goal, it was Coutinho who worked with him continuously to find the space to dribble the ball. In addition, Coutinho had another shot before the penalty area and hit the post. Messi made a shot into the net, but unfortunately he was offside.
Coutinho’s resurrection is related to the change of his position. He is no longer a left winger who clings to the wing, but a central player who dominates Barcelona's offensive direction. Under Koeman, he was reborn again.
"Daily Sports" scored a team-high 8 points for Coutinho after the game: "Keman found an ideal position for him, where he is free to create, risk, and persecute. Although he The location is very close to Messi, but the two will not interfere with each other, but call very much. His recovery is great news for Barcelona."
