Former Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho is enduring a tough time at Camp Nou following his £105 million move from Liverpool to Barcelona last January.
Coutinho has failed to nail down a regular starting spot this season, starting nine league games and making 7 appearances off the bench for the Spanish champions.
Barcelona are enjoying another successful season thus far, sitting top of La Liga, still in the Champions League and still in the Copa Del Rey.
Though, they will need to come from behind to progress in the Copa following a 2-1 defeat to Levante in the first leg on Thursday night.
That was a game Coutinho actually scored in, firing home from the spot to keep Barca in the game after going 2-0 down.
But that didn’t spot manager Ernesto Valverde speaking about Coutinho’s uncertain future at Camp Nou, stating after the game: “When you do not play, and you are not happy, you have to fight to change the situation. Today was a match for that.
"Coutinho is a great player who has given us a lot and will give us a lot. I will say the same about Dembele. It's a repetitive question with interchangeable names."
Those comments have sparked a debate with all invested in Liverpool. Some fans can only laugh at Coutinho’s expense, relishing the fact that the former wantaway midfielder is having little luck with his new club.
Others are sensing an opportunity. Some fans believe Coutinho should be brought back to Liverpool should Barcelona make him available this summer. But is that a good idea?
