VALENCIA, SPAIN - FEBRUARY 08. (Photo by Quality Sport Images/Getty Images) Phil Coutinho is a tragic story; One you can’t help but feel sorry for. He was a star at Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp went through hell and high water to keep him at the club. However, when a club like Barcelona comes calling, there are very few who can refuse. Barcelona fans were exhilarated at the signing. The staunch resistance led by Klopp made many believe that they had purchased a world class athlete who would take them to greater heights. To an extent they were right. However, things didn’t pan out the way it was planned. Phil Coutinho’s purchase by Barcelona made him the 3rd most expensive footballer in the world. The signing came months after PSG snatched Neymar from Barcelona. However, Coutinho was given the assurance that he was being bought in as a replacement for Iniesta and not Neymar. With Iniesta still active at the time though, Valverde decided to play him in the wings despite the Brazilian having never played in the position before in his life. Naturally, his performance began to decline. The fact that he was not given his promised position even after Iniesta’s departure meant he kept on underperforming in an unknown position. He soon began to draw the ire of the fans who even booed him at the Camp Nou. Barcelona tried their best to shift him out this summer. However, very few clubs were interested in the offer and Barcelona had to finally send him out on loan. Bayern Munich taken him in and they have an option to buy. Coutinho now has one chance to redeem himself from the hole he was pushed under at Barcelona. However, until that happens, the Brazilian will unfortunately be considered a failure at the club.
