Iniesta welcomes Coutinho to the Camp Nou


Welcome, Phil Coutinho! It’s a pleasure to have you here at Can Barça, champ!

Phil Coutinho is the footballer who will most likely have to step in and occupy the position that Andrés Iniesta currently plays in. The Barcelona captain is ever closer to retiring, and is aware that the club are searching for a replacement for him, but someone who can, meanwhile, get on well with him.

For that reason, the photo that Iniesta himself posted on his Twitter account, of him with Coutinho has a special symbolism. The Brazilian will not be available for Ernesto Valverde until the month of February, as he has come to Barcelona carrying an injury. Today, Tuesday, has been the first full day of work for the now ex Liverpool player at the Barcelona training ground.
