Barcelona’s Andres Iniesta Backs Coutinho To Join Club


Barcelona star Andres Iniesta is publicly backing Phil Coutinho to join him at Barca in a recent interview with Mundo Deportivo.

Iniesta hope that Saturday’s El Classico clash with Real Madrid won’t be his last.

“I hope it’s not the last Clasico for me but it’s hard to say what will happen in the future” Iniesta said in the interview.

“I’m totally focused on Barcelona, it’s not time to think about the future now, I’m not going to take any decision about my future now, there is a time for everything.”

And about Coutinho?

“Coutinho? He is a great footballer, a top class star. He is very good with both feet, he scores goals, he provides assists, he really helps everybody in the team. His profile is similar to ours’ it would be an amazing singing by the club. I would see no competition with him, I’d be happy because all I care about is the club’s good.”
