Philippe Coutinho... Was UP TO HIS CHALLENGE Against Valladolid...
Some say he still hasn't Got the required Performances to Stay at Barca... I say keep the patience in your souls... Coutinho was in his biggest crisis a while ago . Is he still in that crisis ? I don't think so . " falling down is an Accident . Staying down is a choice " .
I honestly believe our Brazilian is rising . Better & Better in every match , even if 0.5% Better . The most flagrant performance was in our Remontada against Sevilla where he scored 2 goals and showed great Coutinho-like statistics .
What about last match ?
Started as a sub With Dembele who took the LW position , When he joined the pitch , Despite the French Not showing an "awful" performance , Coutinho did not deceive as well . He obviously Got faster in His playmaking . His dribbles are the dribbles Required at Barca . Just imagine if he was played as a CAM... His passes are not as creative as Arthur's or Alena's , but at least Brought fluidity to the game (even if a little bit)
1 word : PROGRESS.
This is what we've been witnessing . He's coming back to his form step by step . Even if He's taking much time to do , Even if he's as slow as they come , I do ask for Barca Fans to wait , and be patient .
Every Footballer , (Even Messi) goes through that crisis in their career . Our G.O.A.T got himself out of it . How can you convince me that our Coutinho isn't also about to rise again ?
At last but not least , Leaving the best for the end ,Coutinho brought back along with Suarez more than once our TRUE DNA ! This tiki Taka style Is insane ! 3 seconds of 1 on 1 Fast 1 touch passes got us a penalty . We've also witnessed this coordination Between Cou & El Pistolero right before the Sevilla match , It led us to a Winning goal .
As Ronaldinho once said , Coutinho possesses inside his veins this true Blaugrana DNA Of ours . He's been a fan of this club since he was a kid .
He is progressing step by step .
I have high Hopes for his recovery , Hoping to be able to finally see the True Coutinho wearing the Blaugrana jersey .
Meanwhile , again , I beg you Barca fans to be patient with our Hero . #fuerzacou
