After walking out alone from the grounds of Anfield to the majestic Camp Nou in a desperate move to Catalunya, Philippe Coutinho has finally opened up on his experience playing alongside Lio Messi, ex-teammate Luis Suarez, Sergio Busquets, “genius” Andres Iniesta.
Describing his experience, Coutinho said, ” It’s an incredible feeling when you look across the dressing room and seeing Andres, Leo, Luis, Sergio Busquets, and everyone else.”
“They are players I used to watch on TV or play with on Playstation and now I am sharing the same dressing room, it’s incredible for me.”
On Iniesta he claimed,” Andres is a genius and it’s an honour to share the same dressing room. I hope to learn a lot from him. Of course there is only one Iniesta. I have come here to try to create a history of my own and learn from these great players.”
Mesmerised by Messi’s nature he stated,” Like everyone else I thought Messi was the best player in the world and to be here with him now is a fantastic honour. It’s a great experience watching him in training and in matches – the way he can transform a match is unbelievable.”
“He is really laid back as a person. Like everyone else he gave me a great welcome. This was a shock because you see he is a real person.”
Quite impressed by his ex-teammate’s goalscoring abilities, he said, ”
I have known Luis for a while, we played together in England and were always together there. I talked to him a lot before I came and he has helped me settle down here. He is an incredible player.”
“He is always scoring, pressuring the opposition, fighting for the ball, he is a real star.”
Iniesta is surely a genius and we would like to see him play at his prime for a longer time.
