Barcelona stars react to Philippe Coutinho's controversial Manchester United celebration

Yesterday night, Philippe Coutinho scored the 3rd goal in Barcelona's 3-0 (4-0) win over Manchester United in the Champions League 1/4 finals second leg. After he scored the goal, Coutinho went on to celebration his goal by closing his ears. The celebration appeared to be in response to those who doubted him. Coutinho's team-mates Clement Lenglet and Sergio Busquets had their say on the celebration. Clement Lenglet said: "I do not care about the celebration, what matters to me is the goal. Coutinho is a great player, he has balls. While Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets added: "I did not see anything. I know he celebrated with anger, with desire. "It was an important goal for him after the criticism he has received. He is a world-class player."
