Coutinho is once again in the spotlight for his controversial incident in Vigo, Until now his reluctance was only known when Sergi sent him out to warm up on the edge of the break due to the injury of Ansu Fati. The rest, known to all: Coutinho did not warm up again and did not play a minute in Balados.
Now, Esports 3 has revealed more details about that alleged conflict that led Sergi to forget about the Brazilian in the second act. According to the Catalan media, Coutinho did not understand that he went out to warm up with the end of the first half just around the corner. “It is not necessary now, the rest is coming,” the Brazilian snapped as revealed in the “Onze” program of Esports3.
The episode was not there and several of his companions later reproached him for his attitude and his reluctance to go out to warm up. At the end of Sergi’s stage and with Xavi at the helm, it remains to be seen if the new Barça coach will put a stop to this matter or if, on the contrary, he does not count as the Brazilian as one of his options in attack.
