Barcelona coaches tell Coutinho: You must do more

Philippe Coutinho has been told more is expected from him at Barcelona.

The former Liverpool midfielder has shone since his January arrival, producing five assists in 12 appearances.

However, Barca coaching staff believe Coutinho is yet to fully settle into Ernesto Valverde's system and is pushing him to do more.

A Barca source told El Pais: "Coutinho must still learn to understand Barça football without losing his excellent passing and shooting quality."

Despite that opinion, Coutinho has already established himself as a first-choice for Valverde.
