Philippe Coutinho is back at FC Barcelona. The Brazilian has returned to training ahead of schedule as he looks to convince Ronald Koeman that he still has a future at Barça.
On Friday morning, Coutinho once again donned the Barça shirt after cutting short his holiday following his Champions League win with Bayern Munich.
The forward wasn’t expected back until next Tuesday (8th September).
It remains to be seen what happens with Coutinho going forward. With some of the biggest earners at the club being told they aren’t needed, it could provide the Brazilian with another chance to establish himself at the Camp Nou.
The Brazilian is optimistic about his future at FC Barcelona and is desperate to prove himself under new head coach Ronald Koeman.
Coutinho showed glimpses of his talent in Lisbon, even if he didn’t start, and helped his side win the Champions League. He’s reportedly told people close to him that he’s ready to prove himself to Barça. A new coach with new ideas has given Coutinho renewed optimism.
