Edmilson: Coutinho style fits Barcelona system

Former Barcelona defender Edmilson is convinced by the quality of Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho battled to make an impact in victory over Alaves yesterday.

Edmilson said: "He often is used in that same position with the national team, with Neymar on the left, Gabriel Jesus in the centre and him on the right, he's doing well there with Titi and his style of play adapts very well.

"I think he is a player with a very high technical quality and can adapt very quickly, but he needs a lot of rhythm in games.

"It was clear from the beginning of summer, he is a player who knows the idea and the system that Barça plays."
