Barcelona continue Coutinho support amid Chelsea, Man Utd interest

Barcelona have continued to back Philippe Coutinho amid interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

The Brazilian has endured a difficult season at Camp Nou after some initial success following his move from Liverpool in January 2018.

But Barca have no plans of cutting their losses when the summer transfer window opens up.

Guillermo Amor, the club's director of institutional and sporting relations, told Sport : "At the beginning with Coutinho we were happy and have always been happy.

"We have to give him chances and he'll take them. He's always shown his quality. He takes risks, he tries.

"It feels as if everyone is watching what he does, the poor guy. But we believe he'll carry on going forward."
