Coutinho debut on hold after completing Barca move
Philippe Coutinho will not be able to make his Barcelona debut for about three weeks because of a thigh injury he sustained while at Liverpool.
The Brazilian playmaker passed a medical on Monday during which Barcelona doctors analysed the injury that kept him out of Liverpool's Premier League win over Burnley on Jan. 1.
" Countinho has an injury in his right thigh. He will be out for 20 days," Barcelona said in a statement, meaning he is likely to make his debut in the Catalan derby against Espanyol on Feb. 4.
Barcelona agreed a 142 million-pound deal with Liverpool on Saturday to buy Coutinho who became their record signing.Published: by Radio NewsHub
