Semedo defends Coutinho against Barcelona jeers

Barcelona fullback Nelson Semedo defended Philippe Coutinho after victory over Rayo Vallecano.

Coutinho was whistled by the Camp Nou on Saturday but Semedo insists the Brazilian is experiencing a run of form that all players endure at one point or another.

"We try to help him," Semedo said.

"He's going through a phase that we all go through.

"He continues to work in every training session, he gives his all and we have to help."
