Barca Nepal, March 11. Satisfied with Barcelona’s win at Malaga, Philippe Coutinho reserved special praise for his colleague, Ousmane Dembele.
The youngster is only 20 years of age, but that hasn’t stopped the Camp Nou boo-boys from sharpening their knives for a player they consider has underachieved in his first season.
“Dembele is a great player and against Malaga he proved it,” Coutinho said to reporters after the match.”His cross was perfect.
“Often, teams at the bottom of the league can cause more problems than others, but a Barcelona win was never in doubt once Luis Suarez opened the scoring.
“We came to play a difficult game and we scored early,” the Brazilian continued.”With one more goal, we controlled the match and we left happy with the three points.
“Now we can think about Chelsea.”Lionel Messi was missing because he was at the birth of his third son, but the Blaugrana never looked like they missed him.
“Leo is the best in the world, we always need him,” Coutinho noted.
“But something nice has happened in his life, I congratulate him and now we’re waiting for him to return for the next match.”
