Barcelona coach Valverde talks Coutinho bid; Suarez form

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde was tightlipped on Monday about their pursuit of Philippe Coutinho.

Barca are expected to move for the Liverpool midfielder in January.

However, Valverde would only say: "If there is any interest in any player, whether by Coutinho or whoever it was, I would like it not to be broadcast live."

At their pre-match media conference for the Copa tie with Murcia, Valverde was also asked about the form of Luis Suarez.

"Tomorrow he'll have a rest and he'll do well. We have already discussed this. I would worry if he had no chances. When a player has them, and Luis usually has them in every game, I do not worry too much. We hope he continues in the same line."
