Ernesto Valverde: 'Philippe Coutinho can bring a lot to Barcelona'

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde has expressed his eagerness to work with Philippe Coutinho as the Brazil international prepares to arrive from Liverpool.

  "I think he can bring a lot to the team. He scores and sets up goals, and going forward he can help us a lot as he can play both inside and out wide," Valverde told reporters after Barca's 3-0 win over Levante on Sunday. "He is versatile and we can take advantage of his versatility. "It is a signing that has been talked about for a long time, although it was not something I was keen to discuss. He is here now, and good luck to him, because if he has luck then it will be good for us. "We will wait until I have seen him train for a day at least until we talk about (how Coutinho will fit into the team), it is true that I have seen videos of him playing in different positions, for Liverpool and for his country. But let's wait and see. I hope he adapts quickly, although good players adapt quickly to any circumstances."
