Coutinho makes honest revelation about last season at Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho turns on the charm for Brazil against Honduras

Philippe Coutinho has slammed his own performances for Barcelona this season.

Coutinho managed just eight goals and five assists across 46 combined La Liga and Champions League outings during 2018/19, leading to reports linking him with a return to the Premier League and the player coming under fire from sections of Barca's fanbase.

"I have not had a good season", Coutinho is quoted as saying by Marca as he prepares for the imminent start of the 2019 Copa America on home soil in Brazil.

Coutinho is now valued at £80m and has reportedly informed Barca chiefs he wants to leave this summer. It was below what I expect from myself and what the supporters expect from me.

"The only way to improve and gain confidence is through hard work, and I have been working hard".

Interestingly, the Brazilian reportedly doubted Jurgen Klopp's qualities at Anfield, with the mindset Barcelona had more prospects of claiming the title instead.

Barcelona tweeted "Happy Birthday Coutinho" with a GIF of their £146million signing and then Liverpool fans quickly posted their response.

"I am very happy, it is a dream come true and I hope to meet all expectations in the field." .

A good performance in this summer's tournament could go a long way toward clearing up Coutinho's club future, which is considered tenuous at Barca.

He was not impressive against his former club Liverpool when they met in the Champions League semifinal second leg encounter which the Reds won 4-0.

Philippe Coutinho left Inter Milan to move to Liverpool back when Brendan Rodgers was in charge of the club.
