Barcelona ace Coutinho: Iniesta a genius. Messi...?

Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho is delighted to be playing alongside Andres Iniesta.

Before his arrival from Liverpool, it was suggested Coutinho was signing to replace the Barca captain.

But he insisted: "He is a genius and anyone who plays with him, he makes them a better player.

"I'm enjoying it a lot."

On Lionel Messi, Coutinho added: "For me they are idols. As incredible as it seems, Leo is getting better, as a fan and now as a teammate, I can only take advantage of the moments. I hope to win many things with him."
