Barcelona chief Amor: Coutinho criticism disappointing

Barcelona chief Guillermo Amor defended Philippe Coutinho after their draw at Athletic Bilbao.

Amor was asked about Coutinho's struggles after Sunday's 0-0 draw.

He said, "With Coutinho, in principle we are happy and always happy, he has to give us what we want and he will do so.

"Whenever he has participated, he shows his quality, he risks, he tries, the disappointing thing seems that everyone is watching his work."

On Real Madrid's improvement, Amor added: "When Madrid was behind Atlético we considered them an important rival and now it's the same."
