Ex-Barcelona midfield general Xavi Hernandes says he believe Brazil’s Philipe Coutinho is not just a play-maker but one of the few players who could help improve the Catalans.
Coutinho who has been in superb form for Liverpool this season has been in Barcelona’s radar for quite some time now and Xavi believes he have what he takes to help the Spanish giant.
Xavi told Goal.com
Coutinho is a player I have always thought is special – but under [Liverpool coach Jurgen] Klopp he has gone up another level. On form there are not any better midfield players in Europe,”
“He is playing under one of the most intelligent coaches in Europe. Klopp has a lot of experience at developing world-class players, so it is a good club for him to be at.”
“When you play at the level he is there is always going to be talk, but for now he needs to ignore all that and stay focused, because I think Liverpool have a real chance this season.
“There are not many players that can improve Barcelona, but if you are asking me if he is one of them, on this form, I think he is. Technically he is very good. He would suit Barcelona’s philosophy well.
