Following another disappointing display from Philippe Coutinho, Barcelona fans are beginning to turn on him and vent their frustrations on Twitter.

When Coutinho moved from Liverpool to Barca for £142m last year, it looked as though the Catalan giants had potentially found themselves an heir to the considerable throne Andres Iniesta was to leave behind. 

However, this season the 26-year-old’s form has failed to really inspire such hopes from the ​Barcelona faithful. His goals and assists have dried up and now his game time has followed accordingly, with the Brazilian having to settle for a more regular role as a benchwarmer this season.

The Copa del Rey tie against Levante was a way for Coutinho to perhaps reminds everyone just what he is capable of. Unfortunately, Barca lost the game 2-1 and the attacking midfielder failed to impress.

Despite him bagging a penalty, football fans have taken to twitter to express their dissatisfaction with the Brazilian’s display.


The abject cup performance really did seem to some up Coutinho’s recent form – he misplaced a number of passes and struggled to make much of a positive impact for Ernesto Valverde’s outfit.  

In light of his poor form, rumours are now beginning to propose the idea that Barca could sell Coutinho in order to fund a return for ​Neymar this summer.
