Barcelona coaching staff unimpressed by Coutinho antics at Celta Vigo

Barcelona coaching staff were left unimpressed by Philippe Coutinho's behaviour during their 3-3 draw at Celta Vigo.

Sport says after Ansu Fati's injury, coach Sergi Barjuan asked for the Brazilian to warm up. The cameras captured an excessive laziness on the part of the former Liverpool footballer, who eventually ended up not playing a single minute.

His intensity when getting up to warm up was very low and after the break, the chosen one to replace the injured Ansu was Alejandro Balde.

Interim coach Sergi was later asked about the incident: “I didn't focus on any of that, I was watching the game, which was very demanding. In 10 days I've felt everyone gets along with me. It's clear that with those who haven't played it's harder.

"I've had to take decisions and he did not play today."
