Coutinho: Barcelona superstars are just nice people

Barcelona ace Philippe Coutinho appreciates the dressing room culture he has joined.

Coutinho, who joined Barca from Liverpool last month, says despite their star status, he has found all his teammates well grounded.

He told Sport: "It is a very difficult question ... [hesitation]. All the players are very good, I see it every day, in training and in games.

"You see them and think, 'this is incredible', but it is not something that surprised me because when I came I already knew it. What has helped me a lot has been the reception of the locker room: they are all very quiet people."
