When asked by Brazilian news portal Uol, coach Tite said, “I’m talking hypothetically, let’s make that clear. There are Sergio Busquets and two creators: Ivan Rakitic and Andres Iniesta, who are the team’s thinkers.”
“Coutinho could play in that role. He is an ideal player for Barcelona. I don’t want to pretentiously give my opinion about Barcelona. But who doesn’t want a player like Coutinho, with that magic, that capacity to intervene and create, change the rhythm, provide triangulation and construct.”
Brazilian coach Tite said that chemistry of Coutinho with Barcelona forwarded and Brazil national teammate Neymar would be added benefit for the Blaugrana.
Tite said “They complement each other tactically. There was a goal (for Brazil against Paraguay) which serves as an example. It involved Neymar on the left, Coutinho floating in the middle. Then the ball got to Marcelo and he scored. It summed up how effective they can be together.”
