Barcelona fullback Jordi Alba: Coutinho whistles...?

Jordi Alba has called on fans to support Barcelona teammate Philippe Coutinho.

The fullback proved the matchwinner as Barcelona defeated Real Sociedad 2-1.

Coutinho, meanwhile, followed up his goal and controversial celebration from midweek with a substitute appearance and was welcomed with whistles.

"I heard applause," Jordi Alba contested.

"He's an important player and we should remember that."
