Among the more positive takeouts from Barcelona's start to the season has been the reemergence of Coutinho, who has performed admirably in the first few encounters.
"I am very happy for Coutinho, but also for me and the team," he said.
"It's great to have a friend like him with me on the staff again, and he is also helping us all with his quality. He is proving his standard.
"He has returned very motivated and very strong. He will give us a lot because we know his potential."
