  • The Brazil playmaker is under no illusions about his struggles this season with Barcelona but believes he will show improvement through effortMore

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 didn't have a great season". It was demanding and they jeered him a lot but here, in this team, he's our reference point.

The Selecao star struggled for the most of the past season, despite making a good start to his Barca career following his exit from Liverpool in January 2018.

"But you can only gain confidence through working hard, which is what I have done and what I will continue to do", noted Coutinho, who is still hurting after seeing former club claim the Champions League.

Seen as one of the players who must step up in that absence, Coutinho scored from the spot on Sunday while also assisting on a Thiago Silva goal in a 7-0 rout of Honduras in Brazil's last tune up before they open up group play against Bolivia on Friday.

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

" Coutinho calls the game". "In the two friendly matches we've played, he was the best player on the pitch. He is finding his happiness again". "But here, in the national team, he's key for us, especially when we do not have Neymar", said the Brazilian defender.

"We tried convincing him that we had the club moving in the right direction and he could experience big Champions League occasions by staying".
